WASHINGTON, D.C., February 24, 2020 – SERVANT LEADERSHIP: A value that Blake Willson Group (BWG) was founded on and one that is critically important now as the world faces the COVID-19 crisis. BWG has been focused on supporting its team members as we all navigate unchartered territory with COVID-19 but also know it’s important to continue serving the community as best we can. As supporters of the American Heart Association since 2014, the leadership of BWG is committed to serving an organization whose mission is to fight heart disease and stroke and save lives. Even now, a healthy heart is critical to avoid underlying health conditions in the face of COVID-19.
On Saturday, February 22, 2020, the American Heart Association hosted its annual Heart Ball at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. This event celebrates efforts to build a foundation of health in our community and ensure everyone lives a longer, healthier life. Whitney Blake (pictured on the second row, third from the left) served as this year’s Auction Committee Co-Chair and worked tirelessly to secure live and silent auction items. These items were vital in helping to raise $1.4 million dollars that evening.
Thank you for your work to change the lives of those affected by heart disease, Whitney!
