Event to Benefit the Larry King Cardiac Foundation

NEW YORK, NY – Woman’s Day magazine’s 7th Annual Red Dress Awards will commemorate American Heart Month by honoring four women who have made significant contributions to the fight against heart disease, the number one killer of women today.

The Views Sherri Shepherd will emcee the event, which will feature performances by Mary J. Blige, Colbie Caillat and Anthony Hamilton, as well as appearances by Larry King, Jennie Garth, Tim Gunn and Dancing with the Stars’ Anna Trebunskaya and Jonathan Roberts.

One of the Award’s sponsors, Campbell Soup Company, is teaming up with Project Runway’s Tim Gunn to help make heart health fashionable. Gunn encouraged people to design a Campbell red dress inspired by their heart-health hero to raise awareness and funds for the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement. Starting in January, people began voting for their favorite finalist’s story and inspired red dress design at to trigger a $1 donation from Campbell to the cause (up to $625,000). Gunn and the winner will debut the original red dress design at this year’s awards ceremony. People can continue to generate contributions to AHA throughout February by clicking on the photo of the winning dress on the website.

The Red Dress Awards will not only honor those making a difference in the fight against heart disease, but will also give others the chance to make a difference.

Sounds like a great cause! I've seen Sherri Shepherd cohost one of tha award programs on TV & she was horrid. She was loudddddd & she had to be the centre of attention. Hope she does a better job.

Can't make a bigger impact than peeling off that red dress. Get naked Larry. It will do your heart good.

Graeme from Ottawa, ON   February 5th, 2010 10:22 pm ET

One word to describe the guests. Why are do they seem so theatrical. Sad.

Luis B Rosario   February 5th, 2010 10:23 pm ET

This matter is very important to women. We can- lay off the
gossip and get down to serious stuff for a while. Just a little while.

Luis B Rosario   February 5th, 2010 10:37 pm ET

@Graeme from Ottawa, On
Sadness is part of happiness. For one cannot exist without
the other. (The latter and fhe former are interwoven). Heart
disease is a crucifix that most of us will rather not carry.

Iam,sorry,but I dont think this people went to haiti to help kids,kidnap yes,abuse maybe.this were all growups..stupid,stupid,stupid.should be tatoo on there forehead

Luis B Rosario   February 6th, 2010 12:50 am ET

Kidnap? I have my reservations. Stupid? Yes. Very stupid.
They were very gullible and greedy but I do not think that
they kidnapping charge will stick to make to trial. Unlawful
imprisonment, child abuse and other charges may apply.

A humble thank-you to all the Mothers out there who have endured so much to move closer to true equality and women's empowerment.

May the future continue with your united success in the focus of heart disease and medical conditions which abnormally strike down more and more women over time.

Eloquent and a very profound statement!

Luis, you are speaking in Taoists terms. Chinese Taoism is the balance of complementary opposites. Tao teaches internal harmony with the self as a means to achieving balance & harmony with others and the natural world. (Yin and Yang)

I'm sure that women in general appreciate your thoughts but
women stricken with heart disease and cancer will appreciate
it the most.

Luis B Rosario   February 6th, 2010 2:28 pm ET

Your understanding of world affairs and your explanations of
different topics is incredible and highly appreciated. Did you
ever considered building your own website.

Dodie   February 8th, 2010 3:05 pm ET

@ Luis B Rosario

Thank you for your kindness and pleasant praise.

I am very much a novice in the realities and complexities of life; however, when we aspire to an understanding enabling us to shift our awareness from self-consciousness (the place where fear, insurmountable feelings of separation reside) to a plateau of cosmic consciousness, traversing towards total harmony with the universe, thereupon anything is feasible!.

Luis B Rosario   February 8th, 2010 5:18 pm ET

You are incredibly, intelligent, poetic and phillosophical. Your
perception of life (mind and spirit) and matter is fantastic.
I admire you and I mean it(no exaggeration). In other
correspondence you asked me what I do, or did. None of
the aforementioned suggestions. I have a Bachelor degree.
but I have a modest background in human behavior. For
more info.; if you wish write to me at,
or I hope that you also had a great week end.

Bob   February 10th, 2010 12:43 am ET

Yes, I believe Conan o' Brian should make a time machine,
and no, my name is not Bob

Luis B Rosario   February 10th, 2010 3:25 am ET

Hyenas have bouts of hysteria too, once in a while. That does not make them a bad animal unless they are trying to eat you alive.
