Heart Ball Committee's Tea Party & Fashion Show
HEART BALL COMMITTEE’S TEA PARTY & FASHION SHOW: EXPLOSION OF TOPAZ
The range of colours of the topaz gemstone is limitless and diverse, from clear white to mystic blue. If there were an explosion of the many shades of topaz, you would see the rainbow: white, yellow, orange, blue, pink, brown, green and many more shades of topaz. Explosions don’t just happen.

The Sir Victor Sassoon (Bahamas) Heart Foundation is a non-profit organization, established over 50 years ago by Lady Evelyn Sassoon. The Heart Foundation aims to help to repair the hearts of children in The Bahamas, whose parents or guardians can not ordinarily afford heart care. Heart care is not cheap and can vary depending on what is wrong with the child’s heart, upon diagnosis. One surgery can cost over $50,000. Thanks to the support of The Sir Victor Sassoon (Bahamas) Heart Foundation many persons, both children and adults, have obtained heart repair and are now living healthy and productive lives. However, this success could not be attained without the generous support of the public.
The Heart Ball Committee is the fund raising arm of The Heart Foundation. Each year, The Heart Ball Committee hosts two major fundraising events: The Heart Ball and The Annual Tea Party / Fashion Show. These events generate funds that aid in the repair of children’s heart. Next year’s Annual Heart Ball is scheduled for February 16, 2013.
Being a non-profit organization, The Foundation relies heavily on the generosity of others to meet their goals. You are encouraged to give your support to fundraising events, including sponsored events and make a difference in the life of a child.
