For a second consecutive year, Mengali Accountancy was a local sponsor for the 2015 North Bay Go Red for Women luncheon held on Friday, May 8, 2015. The Go Red event, now in its 11th year, was hosted at the Hyatt Vineyard Creek in Santa Rosa, CA and included several hundred guests showing off their best red attire and accessories in support of the Go Red cause. Go Red for Women was specifically created by the American Heart Association as an effort to raise awareness of heart disease as the number one killer of women. Heart disease claims the lives of almost 500,000 women each year; more than all forms of cancer combined.
Representing Mengali Accountancy at the luncheon were team members Debbie Warren, Stephanie Luna-Gonzalez, Spari Uchida, Jai Fults, and Kristina Wolf. The impeccably decorated event featured a Go Red Boutique marketplace which also included health tests and screenings. During the luncheon, the team heard stories from the keynote speaker and well-known comedienne, Kat Simmons, along with the personal experiences of heart disease and stroke survivors. Following up the luncheon was a fabulous fashion show and another opportunity to donate to the cause where the event collectively raised over $31,500 in donations during that period alone! A collective $200,000 was raised for the entire event.
