The Agenda

It was enough to move your heart — or at least get you thinking about how to take better care of your ticker. Locally, more than 300 attendees dressed in red kicked off the American Heart Association's Go Red For Women campaign Feb. 6 at the Cleveland Marriott Downtown at Key Center. The national campaign asked women to take charge of their heart health, make it a top priority and live stronger, longer lives. Hosted by WKYC TV 3 health anchor Monica Robins, the event featured inspiration and information from those affected by heart disease. Cleveland Magazine was a local sponsor of the event.

This month, continue the celebration with the American Heart Gala "Put On Your Red Dress, Baby!" Honorary co-chairs Dr. Bernadine Healy and Norma Lerner will host the April 24 benefit at the Cleveland Marriott Downtown The evening begins with a VIP reception at 6 p.m. and includes dinner, cocktails, a silent auction and dancing until midnight.

Swim for Diabetes

Get wet for a good cause April 23 to 25 and raise money for the Diabetes Association of Greater Cleveland. Swim, scuba, snorkel (you can also walk, ride or run to raise money) at more than 60 pool locations throughout Greater Cleveland. Verizon Wireless, Cleveland Magazine and a host of others are sponsors of the event. Visit for more information.

Fusion Football Kicks Off

The Cleveland Fusion kicks off its National Women's Football Association season at home in grand style. The April 24 home opener, held at Cleveland Browns Stadium at 3 p.m., will be the first NWFA game held in an NFL stadium. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. Cleveland Magazine is a sponsor of the game. Call (440) 816-1457 for tickets.

Market Price

The Galleria at Erieview gets a facelift — make that a food-lift — as it's transformed into a marketplace of culinary specialties, festivities and fun for Market Under Glass. The April 19 benefit for Harvest for Hunger features more than 30 local restaurants and beverage purveyors. Celebrity chef Chez Ray will demonstrate cooking techniques and mingle with guests. Cleveland Magazine is a sponsor of the event, which is presented by Kaiser Permanente.

Green Opening

Now that the work is finally complete, it's time to show off a little. For months, a collection of nonprofit organizations, businesses and dedicated individuals have been working to transform an 88-year-old home into a state-of-the-art example of environmentally friendly remodeling. A series of open houses will be held April 23 to 25.

A "Contractors Open House" from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 23 will feature seminars, workshops and demonstrations by project participants for professional contractors seeking to learn more about green products and methods.
