The 46th annual Salisbury-Rowan Heart Ball was held Saturday, February 9 at the Country Club of Salisbury. This year’s ball was chaired by Bill and Shari Graham.

Approximately 240 guests attended the black-tie dinner and dance event.

More than $19,000 was raised this year for heart-related charities in Rowan County.

Proceeds from this year’s Heart Ball will be donated to the American Heart Association in memory of Lillie Edwards, to the Community Care Clinic of Rowan County and to the Rowan-Salisbury Schools Child Nutrition Program.
