Orlando Hadassah presents the Bunny Rosen Fashion Show

The Orlando Chapter of Hadassah presents My Fair Lady, the annual Bunny Rosen Women's Heart Health Luncheon and Fashion Show on Sunday, March 5, at 11:30 a.m.

This year's affair will be held in the ballroom of the Westin Hotel in Heathrow with fashions presented by the combined boutiques of Chico's Winter Park and Altamonte Springs. In keeping with Hadassah's 2016-2017 Celebration of Women, My Fair Lady-Race day at Royal Ascot has been chosen as the theme for the event.

Hats are always appropriate on Race Day, so design a chapeau and enjoy the opportunity to win a prize for your creation. As you may recall from the film, "Race Day" attire is black and white and guests are encouraged to dress in these colors.

The Bunny Rosen Women's Heart Health Fashion Show Endowment was established to honor the memory of Bunny Rosen for her tireless efforts on behalf of Orlando Hadassah. This annual charity event is a permanent memorial to Rosen and her endeavors in support of Hadassah's good works for Jews in Israel and worldwide and in particular all women at home and abroad.

"Every Beat Counts" TM is Hadassah's Women's Heart Health program and was founded to educate women about the risks, detection and prevention of heart disease, the No.1 cause of death among women in the U.S. and worldwide. One in three women over the age of 20 has some form of cardiovascular disease. Here's an alarming reality: 500,000 women in the U.S. die of heart disease every year. Heart disease kills more women than stroke, lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and breast cancer combined. Although women share many of the same risk factors as men, at-risk women are less likely to be tested or treated in a timely manner. And when presenting with the same symptoms or risk factors, women are less likely to be referred for diagnostic testing that would be standard for men.

Hadassah promotes "Every Beat Counts" TM to get the word out to women that cardiac screenings are a key factor in heart disease prevention. The program pioneers in teaching women how to prevent heart disease through heart health programs, educational materials, a walking program and an awareness campaign about this No.1 killer of women.

Orlando Hadassah is committed to promoting heart disease awareness through "Every Beat Counts" in coordination with the chapter's Saving Heartbeats program which prepares women to perform CPR until the Paramedics arrive. The Bunny Rosen Luncheon and Fashion show contributes charitable funds to promote women's heart health in the greater Orlando Area.

The luncheon and fashion show is open to the public. The menu offers a choice of Salmon or Wild Mushroom Ravioli. The couvert is $45 per person and tables of 10 are available. Make Checks payable to Hadassah, and send checks, meal selection and table reservations to Orlando Hadassah, 1040 Bloomsbury Run, Heathrow, FL 32746.
