It is important to give some big accolades to Dianne York-Goldman and Pat Brown for their participation in the "Go Red for Women Day" luncheon, since so many women are affected by heart related diseases. So here are the quotes. First from Dianne York-Goldman of La Jolla Spa-MD, who is a big sponsor of the event and the cause.

"Yes, I did attend the American Heart Association National Go Red for Women Day Luncheon at the Hotel Del Coronado. The luncheon was a huge success with a ballroom full of red suits, dresses, ties and pocket handkerchiefs worn by all. It is amazing what the color red can do. Everyone was in an upbeat mood, excited, and happy to help this problem of heart disease---the number one killer of women.

La Jolla Spa MD had a booth at Hotel Del Coronado with licensed nurses and doctors answering medical questions. There was also massage therapists available to administer chair massage. Makeup artists were available at the booth to apply DYG mineral makeup --- especially red lip gloss to the attendees who were mostly dressed in red. La Jolla Spa MD participated in pre and post lunch activities that included health screenings, educational seminars, and lectures.

The keynote speaker was Dr. Carole Banka, who was a little worried about her hair before her presentation. She kept asking me if her hair was falling down. She had it perfectly placed in a bun and the bun stayed in its proper placement the entire luncheon. Dr. Banka delivered a very informative speech about heart disease. She presented many interesting statistics. After listening to the keynote speaker, I have actually began cutting my diet Dr. Pepper's from my diet.

Maggie Watkins was the chair. She made it a point to let me know that last year's winner of our live auction --the Aspen condo we donated last year had called her yesterday to let her know she was enjoying Aspen this week and would not be able to attend the luncheon, but praised the attention she was receiving from the Ritz Carlton Club in Aspen, Colorado.

Yolanda Walther-Meade gave a splendid greeting as well as looking quite beautiful as her family was honored as the 2006 legacy family. Her daugher had flown in from New York, where she is a practicing attorney on Wall Street. Everyone was enjoying the beautiful weather in Coronado."

Pat Brown, of KNSD 7/39, enjoyed emceeing the event once again. Brown's comments:
"After five years as emcee of this powerful event, I continue to be amazed at not only the continued growth of awareness that heart disease is the #1 killer of women, but also at the depth of feeling women (and men) have about this movement. It really DOES come from the heart!"
