SAYING goodbye is never easy, yet it was a necessary move for Ingrid Sears, who for almost a decade has been known for her tireless and passionate commitment to the Heart Ball Committee as its public relations officer.
And even though that chapter has closed for Ms Sears, she will remain a friend to the committee and the Heart Foundation.
The Heart Ball Committee is the fundraising arm of the Sir Victor Sassoon (Bahamas) Heart Foundation. It is a non-profit entity established in 1961 that helps to repair the hearts of children.
The Heart Foundation works along with the Bahamas Heart Association to educate the public about heart care in hopes of preventing heart disease in adults and children.
Ms Sears’ journey with the Heart Ball Committee began in September 2006 when she was invited by other committee members to join the team.
