Volunteers prepare for 6th Annual Red Dress Gala

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – The St. Bernard's Auditorium in Jonesboro is full of people as they prepare for the 6th Annual Red Dress Gala.

Many volunteers say this event is more than fun, it's important! Chairman of the Red Dress Gala Mary Jackson says, "It's one of our biggest fund raisers to raise money for women and heart disease. Heart Disease is the number one killer of women, [and] not many people know that. The statistics have greatly reduced in the past few years, but it's still very important, and we need to get the word out."

The doors for the Red Dress Gala will open tomorrow night at seven, and there still a few seats available.
