IRVINE, California, September 11, 2023 — The 2023 Orange County Heart and Stroke Ball will be held Saturday, September 16, 2023, at the Ritz Carlton, in Dana Point. The annual gala is a culmination of the year-round American Heart Association Heart of Orange County campaign, an initiative uniting community leaders to invest and make an impact in improving CPR education, controlling blood pressure and improving nutrition security. The Heart and Stroke Ball marks a moment in time to reflect, honor and celebrate the progress made through the determination, dedication, and passion of all who support the Heart of Orange County.
