22nd Annual Southern Coast Heart Ball Set for Feb. 2

By | Local NewsWIRE

22nd Annual Southern Coast Heart Ball Set for Feb. 2

(HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C.) The American Heart Association (AHA) will host the 22nd Annual Southern Coast Heart Ball on Saturday, Feb. 2, at 6 p.m. at the Westin Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa.

The annual black-tie gala, chaired by Catherine Donaldson of Celia Dunn Sotheby’s International Realty, will celebrate life-saving advances made in the Lowcountry over the last 22 years. Donaldson is chairing in honor of her husband, who served in the U.S. Army Reserves and died of a heart attack in 2016.

“This year’s theme is very special to the Southern Coast community. It represents our heroes in the community, from our veterans and survivors to our caretakers and first responders, and that is the American Heart Association’s mission, to end heart disease and stroke,” Donaldson said.

The Southern Coast Heart Ball will bring together more than 400 guests from the corporate, philanthropic and medical communities to celebrate 2018’s accomplishments while raising funds to further the AHA’s mission.

Guests will enjoy an evening of dining, dancing and live entertainment as well as live and silent auctions.

The event will celebrate the heart association’s mission, supporters and volunteers while honoring lives saved or improved because of the work of the AHA and the generosity of the Lowcountry and Savannah communities. In addition, guests will hear the story of Lilly Cochran, who was born with several congenital heart defects. The event also will honor her father, a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, who had heart disease.

Thanks to the generosity of local institutions and businesses such as Legacy Sponsor Audi Hilton Head and Signature Sponsor Hilton Head Regional Healthcare, the Heart Ball is able to fund cardiovascular research, professional and public education, school site programs and advocacy efforts throughout the year.

Despite advancements in the fight against heart disease and stroke, heart disease remains the number one cause of death among U.S. citizens. In South Carolina, strokes are the fifth-leading cause of death. Nationally, nearly 2,200 people die each day from cardiovascular disease, an average of one death every 39 seconds.

Local Rotary Calls for Volunteers for Second Annual Savannah Rotary Read-In

Local Rotary Calls for Volunteers for Second Annual Savannah Rotary Read-In

(SAVANNAH, GA) The Rotary Club of Savannah is searching for volunteers to serve as community readers for the second annual Savannah Rotary Read-In on Wednesday, March 13, from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

Last year’s inaugural event drew 526 volunteer readers who read to students in 566 classrooms. This year, Savannah-Chatham public schools plans to add pre-kindergarten to the list, which means Rotarians and volunteers will read to students in 600 pre-k through third-grade classrooms in 32 schools.

“We hope to promote literacy with nearly 15,000 local students at this event,” said Lowell Kronowitz, president of the Rotary Club of Savannah. “Our goal is to have around 600 volunteers join our Rotarians in giving back by reading for one hour on this special day to spark young imaginations and encourage the desire to read more.”

A report by the Annie E. Casey Foundation indicates children who aren’t reading at grade level by the end of third grade are four times as likely to drop out of high school.

Debra Larson, president & CEO of Hospice Savannah, and retired trucking company owner Frank Moore, Jr., who serves as a substitute teacher in the school system, are co-chairing the event. Moore introduced the idea when he moved to Savannah from California where his club there had run the program for 26 years.

“We are looking for volunteers to help just one day for one hour with just one book. The impact for the students is tremendous,” said Moore.

The club also is seeking 32 volunteers to serve as liaisons to handle communication with the schools’ personnel, confirm classrooms and identify books for the read-in.

E Shavers Booksellers is offering a discount to anyone who buys a children’s book to read during the event.

To register to read at the Savannah Rotary Read-In, please sign up here by March 7: https://savannahrotaryreadin.com/

The Greatest Legacy of President George H.W. Bush

The Greatest Legacy of President George H.W. Bush
By Kayla Johnson

Over the past several days, Americans have paused to remember our 41st U.S. president, George H.W. Bush.

Kayla Johnson, Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society

Following his death on November 30, the news was filled with reminders of his dedication as a public servant. As vice president and president, he helped guide our country out of the cold war. During World War II, he was an aviator in the Pacific theater and survived being shot down by Japanese gunners.

Plus, all of us have seen the many photos portraying his humanity as a devoted husband, father and grandfather to a large and loving family.

While I honor and remember him for all of these things, it was the union of the two great loves of his life – service to his country and love of family – that became his greatest legacy. That occurred when he signed the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) into law on July 26, 1990. He had supported the monumental legislation as it made its way through Congress and is credited with ensuring its eventual passage.

Modeled after the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the ADA is one of America’s most comprehensive pieces of civil rights legislation designed to prohibit discrimination and guarantee that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as everyone else to participate in the mainstream of American life. It opened doors to employment opportunities, requires covered employers to provide reasonable accommodations to employees with disabilities and imposes accessibility requirements on public accommodations.

This legislation changed everything, not just for those with disabilities, but for all of us.

When President Bush signed the ADA into law on that third week after Independence Day nearly 30 years ago, he did so with a great sense of enthusiasm and ceremony. While I’m sure he was confident it would be an “equal opportunity” law for people with disabilities, I also believe his passion was genuine as he shared these words at the bill’s signing:

“I now lift my pen to sign this Americans with Disabilities Act and say: Let the shameful wall of exclusion finally come tumbling down.”

President Bush went on to champion, and then sign the IDEA Act in October 1990, which provides children with disabilities the same opportunities for education as those students who do not have a disability. His actions directly influenced the passage of the ABLE Act in 2014, which created tax-advantaged savings accounts for individuals with disabilities; and H.R. 188, also known as the TIME Act, which was introduced in 2015. This legislation proposes phasing out a section of the Fair Labor Standards Act which allows “sub-minimum wage” compensation for work by people with different abilities.

While our work is ongoing, the lawful beginnings are notably attributed to President George H. W. Bush and for him, we are thankful.

Certainly, the ADA declared new opportunities for the differently-abled to be independent, but could we have imagined how it would benefit everyone? From that day forward, the word “inclusion” would become part of our vocabulary, our building codes, our hiring practices and our general thoughts.

The often unspoken rift that had long kept those with disabilities from sharing spaces, workplaces and experiences that everyone else takes for granted was dissolving. It would not be an immediate transition or an easy one for some, but little by little the ADA changed our culture and our mindsets. People who had been considered invisible or hindered by convention and physical obstacles were now recognized as the productive, enthusiastic, capable individuals that they are and were finally given the full rights of citizenship afforded to every other American.

As executive director of the Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society, I see the fruits of the ADA each day in the eyes and on the faces of those whose lives have been changed for the better because of President George H.W. Bush’s act love.

With the deepest appreciation now and always,
