Guard A Heart Was Honored As The Charity Of Choice For Fashion Destination Group's "Sail In Style" Yacht Event On September 29, 2012

IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Guard a Heart, a non-profit foundation committed to raising awareness about Heart Disease prevention, was honored as the charity of choice for Fashion Destination's " Sail In Style" annual VIP event on September 29, 2012.


The evening yacht excursion featured fabulous high fashions, great food, live entertainment and celebrity appearances aboard Pacific Avalon's Majestic Yacht. Actress Maria Menounos and co-anchor of Extra attended the event and Gretchen Rossi, OC Real Housewife, showcased her handbag collection along with the premier of GENLUX OC Magazine's Fall issue. The winner of the Mermaid Model Search was revealed and performing artist Aria Johnson entertained the crowed with her pop vocal stylings, along with teen singing sensation Savannah Robinson who captured the audience with her incredible vocal performance. The third deck of the ship served as a designer runway fashion show with one-of-a-kind designs ranging from fabulous swimwear to elegant evening attire by Marisa Kenson, Rachel Roy, LUXE by Lisa Vogel, Claire Farwell London, Thai Nguyen, and Nicole Richie (Macy's Collection). Images of the evening's festivities were captured by Tony Lattimore Photography.

A portion of the evening's proceeds went to benefit Guard a Heart Foundation to support their " Know Your Risk, Inspire Life" campaign, raising awareness for Heart Disease prevention and education. Through their numerous events this year they have raised awareness for Heart Disease and empowered individuals to take charge of their health. Because of their efforts, hundreds of people now know their heart score and many individuals have been identified with a high cardiac risk but can now make lifestyle modifications to mitigate the chance of an actual event.

"It was our great pleasure to honor Guard a Heart at this event which raises awareness for heart health. Heart Disease is the leading cause of death and it is preventable about 80% of the time," commented Marisa Kenson, Founder of Fashion Destination.  "We are proud to support organizations like Guard a Heart which continue to combat the devastating impact of Heart Disease through education and awareness.

About Guard a Heart

Guard a Heart is a non-profit foundation dedicated to raising awareness of Heart Disease prevention by spreading the word to guard your heart and save your life. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. If individuals know their risk and take the necessary steps, the good news is that most cardiovascular disease is preventable. Although Heart Disease is typically diagnosed in adulthood, its roots are often found in childhood. Compelling research has shown that plaque buildup in the arterial walls begins very early in life and progresses through increasing degrees of atherosclerosis. Intervention strategies and healthy lifestyle changes to reduce Heart Disease risk should begin early when reversal of the process is easier, not later in life when the disease is more fully developed.  Guard a Heart provides assistance for individuals who are unable to pay for cardiac risk assessments.  Please visit for more information.
