BENTON -- The 2023 Central Arkansas Go Red for Women Luncheon was held May 10 at the Benton Event Center.
The guests, most of whom wore red, enjoyed a health expo and silent auction before being seated for lunch which included a mixed green salad, cornbread, smoked chicken thigh and pork loin served with a bourbon peach jam, mashed potatoes and braised green beans.
The program began with a Red Dress Style Show introduced by Michelle Duvall and featuring clothing from Dillard's. Becky Rogers served as emcee for the occasion which featured a variety of speakers including Michael Stewart, chief executive officer of presenting sponsor Saline Health System; event co-chairmen Drs. Paula and Anthony Fletcher; and Jean McSweeny.
Six heart disease or stroke survivors were introduced and honored. They were Sunni Ackley, Donna Eastham, Maddie Finn, Brenda McKeever, Lana Roach and Charity Smith.
