The 2012 Omaha "HeART of the Matter" Heart Ball is an evening of creating and sharing. It celebrates: our work and mission; our donors and volunteers; and — most importantly — the lives saved and improved because of everyone’s effort. The Heart Ball promises to be an engaging evening of fun and passion bringing community and philanthropic leaders together. Last year, our Heart Ball campaign raised just over $51 million nation-wide allowing us to fund over $123 millon of research and programs across the country and in your community. The 2011 Omaha Heart Ball alone raised over $500,000 to fund life saving research right here in our community. Let's make 2012 our best year ever!
