LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) -  An annual luncheon in our area is raising awareness for women's heart health.

Wednesday morning's 'Go Red for Women' luncheon pointed to statistics about heart disease among women, and how to recognize cardiac events. Heart disease remains the number one killer of women across the country, even though about 80-percent of cardiac events can be prevented.

Event organizers say Wednesday's luncheon helped show how our community comes together for the benefit of local women.

"It's really aiming to raise awareness and funds in our community that stays right here in La Crosse, and help the women of La Crosse, the La Crosse community, both fight heart disease that they have and be better aware and prepared to prevent heart disease in the future,” said ‘Go Red for Women’ Luncheon Co-Chair Katie Poehling.

This is the 7th year the annual 'Go Red for Women' luncheon has been in our area.
