On Saturday, June 18, 2011, more than 260 guests enjoyed perfect weather at the Southern New England Heart Ball at the Marble House in Newport, RI, and helped the American Heart Association raise more than $185,000 for the fight against heart disease and stroke.

Through our Charity by Design efforts, Alex and Ani has partnered with the American Heart Association and has donated proceeds to the charitable organization.  This year, Alex and Ani owner and designer, Carolyn Rafaelian, and CEO Giovanni Feroce were invited to attend the Southern New England Heart Ball and graciously donated product to The Giving Tree for Donors.

In Rhode Island and Massachusetts alone, the American Heart Association currently invests more than $38.8 million in scientific research.  Alex and Ani would like to thank the American Heart Association for a wonderful partnership and will continue doing our part to bring awareness and donate to this wonderful cause!
