QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Hundreds of people joined together to fight the number one killer of men and women: heart disease. It was the "Heart of Our Community Gala": a sold out event with all proceedings supporting heart patients. 

Blessing Health System prepared heart-healthy meals and there was a presentation about eating healthy. 

President and CEO of Blessing Health System Maureen Kahn said the event had heart-health in mind. 

"The menu has been prepared by cardiologists working with the chef so we're going to eat healthy," Kahn said. "We're having wines that all have positive benefits to our health, and then after dinner we're going to dance and burn off a few calories." 

All the money from the ticket sales will go to The Blessing Foundation to support heart care and help heart patients in need.
