Women will be dressed to impress in an upcoming luncheon and fashion show to finish out American Heart Month.

“Everyone starts setting their sights on the lake, spring, spring break and cute dresses,” said Susan Foy, Russell Medical Center marketing director. “It has been a sellout crowd the past two years, so we hope and anticipate we will sell out again this year.”

The show and luncheon, sponsored by the RMC Foundation and set to be held at Jake’s Feb. 28, will highlight clothing, accessories, shoes, purses and moreĀ from local boutiques as well as a couple from Auburn and Birmingham. It will also highlight awareness of heart issues.

Dr. Kevin Sublett, who is a cardiologist at RMC “will speak to the group about women and heart diseases and share new updates,” Foy said. “We want women to learn about the important aspects of heart disease in women and what treatment there is available and preventative measures.”

Tickets are $15, which includes lunch, gratuity and the show.

“We always enjoy a great lunch from Jake’s,” Foy said. “We fill up every seat.”

Seating is limited, and tickets must be purchased in advance from the hospital gift shop or community relations office, Foy said.

Doors will open at 11:30 a.m. and the show begins at noon.

Foy said the event was less about fundraising and more about “a community benefit for heart disease education.”

“It provides a great venue for that,” Foy said. “It’s a fun day.”

The show will highlight items for women of all ages with models lined up through the boutiques, the hospital and throughout the community.

“There is a lot more at our fingertips in this community than you may realize,” Foy said. “We’ll have a little bit of everything.”
