The American Heart Association (AHA) is proud to announce Tony Boor of Blackbaud will chair the 23rd Annual Charleston Heart Ball. The Heart Ball will be held on Friday, May 1, 2020, at the Gaillard Center.
In his role as chair, Boor will work with local leaders to support the Charleston Heart Ball and expand the AHA’s mission. Boor is the Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President of Finance and Administration at Blackbaud. He is responsible for Blackbaud’s financial reporting and controls, corporate IT, investor relations, treasury, legal, real estate, and administrative services. Boor and his wife Rebecca Sue are dedicated servant leaders in the Charleston community and were the Charleston Heart Ball’s Open Your Heart Chairs in 2019. This year, they are extending their involvement with the American Heart Association and are helping to spread the AHA’s mission in the community.
“Working with the American Heart Association to create healthier and stronger communities is both a professional honor and personal passion of mine. The AHA is leading the charge in CPR trainings, educating others about the signs and symptoms of heart disease, and funding lifesaving research,” said Boor. “That’s why I’m so excited to have the opportunity to make an even bigger impact on Charleston’s health alongside our incredible Executive Leadership Team.”
Through the generous support of the community and local Life is Why sponsors MUSC Health and the InterTech Group, the American Heart Association was able to celebrate the lives saved and improved in the Lowcountry. All proceeds will support AHA-funded cardiovascular disease research, helping to improve the lives of residents in the area.
