UTICA, NY – Raising awareness and raising funds.

That was the goal of the Pink Goes Red for Love Gala, held at the Delta Hotels by Marriott on Saturday.

The Nu Psi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated hosted an evening of dinner and dancing to raise money for the American Heart Association.

Just as important, they helped raise awareness about heart disease.

“Cardiovascular disease is the number one disease that affects women. 1 in 3 women die from heart disease annually” says sorority president Cheryl Minor.

Besides raising money for the Heart Association, they also raised money for their scholarship fund.
