The Riverside Community Hospital’s HeartCare Institute held its 7th Annual Red Dress Fashion Show at the Riverside Convention Center. The event entitled, “saving Hearts for Generations to Come” featured local community leaders dressed in vintage fashions all sporting some shade of red in an event that benefited The American Heart Association. Organized by Cherie Crutcher, RCH’s Director of Marketing, the event hosted close to 1,000 people who listened to presentations on heart disease prevention and treatment options. Participants also took advantage of a variety of health screenings, spa treatments, and an opportunity to meet celebrity make-up artist Edgar Santos.
Riverside Downtown Partnership was the main event sponsor, the Riverside City College School of Cosmetology led by Peter Westbrook provided hairstyling and make-up for the models, and downtown retailers provided most of the clothes.
