As a leader in the Niagara business community and we are inviting you to join other business owners in the support of a program that is unique to the Niagara Region. One which targets every family in Niagara in the prevention of the leading cause of death in the world today: Heart Attack and Stroke.
Heart disease affects all of us; the lasting effects are felt by more than one generation. Your support will demonstrate social responsibility to invest in families and adolescents to improve health, wellness and quality of life.
Where the proceeds are going?
The net proceeds and donations will support of a Heart Niagara program that is unique to the Niagara Region. One which targets every family in Niagara in the prevention of the leading cause of death in the world today: Heart Attack and Stroke.
Heart Attack and Stroke risk factors cluster in families and can be identified at an early age when families have an adolescent at school. The Healthy Heart Schools’ Program goes into each school and makes that connection. We have NO OTHER SUPPORT from any medically-based organizations or NGOs. And is the only agency that creates this awareness in family members at a time when preventive action can be taken.
Your commitment to Heart Niagara and the Healthy Heart Schools’ Program will enhance the work of the Team and Researchers to encourage the Primary Prevention of Heart Attack and Stroke by intervention BEFORE symptoms arise.
Thank you for supporting a made in Niagara solution

Why this project, Why a gala?
The Roaring Twenties Gala February 7, 2020 is a 1920’s style fundraising event to support Heart Niagara.
This event is a way to support Heart Niagara, increase community awareness and linking with businesses and community members who are likeminded. The Roaring Twenties gala provides a perfect opportunity to blend and celebrate while raising the necessary funds to support a program that is unique to Niagara through special event fundraising.
The Healthy Heart Schools’ Program (HHSP) is the recipient of the net proceeds; a program which targets every family in Niagara in the prevention of the leading cause of death in the world today: Heart Attack and Stroke.
Heart Attack and Stroke risk factors cluster in families and can be identified at an early age by reviewing family history and other risk factors. Schools are a key channel to reach families. The HHSP reached 3,500 students and their families annually in 27 secondary schools making the connection directly with students, their families and physician; we are the only agency that creates this awareness in family members at a time when preventive action can be taken. HHSP is delivered through sponsorship and fundraising.
Your support will enhance the work of the HHSP and encourage the primary prevention of heart attack and stroke by intervention BEFORE symptoms arise. HN has partnered with Americana Conference Resort and Spa where 500 guests can sit comfortably for dinner, dancing and comradery.
Heart Niagara does a gala every 5-7 years as a way to acknowledge donors, increase program awareness and further brand Heart Niagara and our commitment to the health of Niagarians.
Music brings joy and activity we believe this aligns with our community goals

Tidbits about the Twenties
All that is old is new again
Also known as the Jazz Age, the decade of the 1920s featured economic prosperity and carefree living for many. The decade began with a roar. The 1920s was a decade of change, when many Canadians owned cars, radios, and telephones for the first time. The cars brought the need for good roads.
First off, the 1920s parties that were poured over in the “society pages” of the paper were often large formal dinners, with custom-made place cards and pale pink candlesticks and huge centerpieces of gladiolas and dozens of waiters appearing as if by magic. So if you want a really good Roaring Twenties party you may have to spend a few grand on flowers and invite a hundred or so guests (make sure you have really long tables).
There’s basically three adult beverages you need for a swell Jazz Age party:
Highballs — This was THE drink of choice for most flappers and sheiks. The ingredients are pretty simple: put ice in a glass, add a couple ounces of whiskey, and top it off with soda–sprayed from a glass seltzer bottle, of course.
Gin blossoms — The second drink of choice, and equally simple to make. Shake gin and fresh-squeezed orange juice with ice and strain into a glass. Or just pour gin and juice straight into a glass so you get to drink it faster. Some recipes also include vermouth, but that’s if you’re feeling fancy. What’s great is that the orange juice really masks that rough, bootlegged-gin taste–win!
Champagne — What’s a jazzy party without a good glass of bubbly? In the movies, at least, everyone went nuts for champagne. Be sure to serve it in the proper coupe-style glass (not a flute). And be sure to stack the glasses in a big pyramid and then fill them up, top glass first. Sure, lots of champagne will probably spill on the floor, but it will look really first-rate, fellows.
The 1920’s were Broadway’s prime years, with over 50 new musicals opening in just one season. Record numbers of people paid up to $3.50 for a seat at a musical. It was also a decade of incredible artistic developments in musical theater.
There were three major inventions that made popular music more accessible than ever before: the phonograph, radio, and the record player. Piano sales sagged as phonograph production increased from 190,000 in 1923 to 5 million in just six years! The popularity of jazz and blues music fueled the phonograph boom.
A few of the most popular musicians during the time were George Gershwin, Al Jolson, Louis Armstrong, and Eddie Cantor.
