The Lady Sassoon Golden Heart Award was initiated by The Heart Foundation to applaud and give recognition to individuals who have selflessly given of themselves, to promote human welfare and dignity, thus making life better for their fellow men. Oftentimes, these individuals go unrecognized by the wider community for their efforts; they don’t ask for anything in return for their generosity. In most cases, they go beyond the call of duty, working outside of their normal scope of work, to impact our nation’s social, educational, health and economic systems.
The 50th Lady Sassoon Golden Heart Award will be presented at the 51st Annual Heart Ball. Under the patronage of Her Excellency Dame Marguerite Pindling, Governor General, and The Right Honourable Perry Gladstone Christie, Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, and Mrs. Bernadette Christie, the 2014 / 2015 Heart Ball Committee will host the 51st Annual Heart Ball on Saturday, February 14, 2015. The Annual Heart Ball is the major fund-raiser to aid The Sir Victor Sassoon (Bahamas) Heart Foundation. The funds raised from this event help to repair the hearts of children, who can not ordinarily afford heart care. The theme for this Ball is, “Affairs of the Heart….Sustaining Heart Beats, One at a Time”. The public is encouraged to help to repair a child’s heart, while spending Valentine’s with family and friends at the Annual Heart Ball.
One of the highlights of the evening is the presentation of the Lady Sassoon Golden Heart Award. Additionally, guests can look forward to an evening filled with love, laughter, fine foods, dancing, prizes and surprises. There will be live band and orchestral performances by the S-G Band and The RBDF Dance Band. Guests can conclude the evening by dancing to special music by Gary “Super” Johnson.
The public can submit nominations, to be accompanied by a letter or statement explaining why the person recommended should receive the award. Nominations are to be submitted to:
