“The event’s mission is to provide community members the opportunity to obtain information about the resources available in the Golden Triangle area.”

The “For the Love” health component stems from the event’s goal to raise awareness about heart disease facts and prevention in honor of National Heart Month.

Several local groups and businesses will be represented, including health clinics, tax preparers, event planners, counseling and much more.
