The largest fundraiser for the American Heart Association, Cotes du Coeur raises millions of dollars for the foundation, with all proceeds from the event going to the research and education of  heart disease. During our lives, we will all be affected by heart disease, as it is our nation’s number one killer. This year, the wonderful event will take place Saturday, April 14, 2012 at the Hilton Anatole.

A beautiful, swanky event featuring food from the restaurants of celebrated local chefs such as Central 214, Sevy’s, Fearing’s, Abacus, Jasper's and more, Cotes du Coeur is the place to be for a wonderful evening. As Philippe Blanck of Domaine Paul Blanck says, AHA Cotes du Coeur is “from the heart to the heart.”
