As one of the evening’s Twitter Wall sponsors, McCann Systems is working with the 92-year old organization to bring awareness and education to the masses through social media.
The annual gala event celebrates the American Heart Association chapter’s work and mission, their donors and volunteers, and – most importantly – the lives saved and improved because of this combination. Last year’s Heart Ball campaign raised over $1 million last year to fund research and programs across the United States.
