John and Laurie Walp of Lockport will co-chair the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women luncheon on Feb. 13 at the Buffalo Marriott in Amherst.

The annual luncheon brings nearly 300 local business women together to raise their voices about heart disease, which takes the lives of one in three Western New York women, according to the AHA.

"Mr. & Mrs. Walp are leading the organization’s appeal to the local business community to support the American Heart Association’s mission to build healthier lives, free from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by joining the Go Red movement," according to a press release by the American Heart Association.

The luncheon's vendor fair begins at 10:30 a.m. where guests will be pampered with spa treatments, cooking and exercise demonstrations, and health screenings. The luncheon begins at noon and will be hosted by WKBW’s Joanna Pasceri. Twelve local survivors will be honored and featured in a survivor gallery and the 3rd annual Heroine of the Heart will be announced and presented.

Guests will hear a young woman’s amazing story of survival and triumph after beating heart failure and receiving a heart transplant at the age of 25. After lunch, the audience will be privy to some amazing breakthroughs happening right in Western New York by UB’s Vice Chair for Research, Dr. Glenna Bett.

Tables and tickets are available and can be purchased by calling the American Heart Association at 614-1987 or
