BELLEVUE, KY – JANUARY 23, 2015 – Bellevue Renaissance invites you to their February Shop Bellevue! event, “Red Hot”. Valentine’s Day will be a week away, but there’s an event that day you won’t have to wait for on Friday, February 6.  National Wear Red Day – Go Red for Women®.  To help raise awareness they’re asking you to wear red that day.  You’ll find merchants during Shop Bellevue! from 5 to 9 pm providing specials for patrons wearing their red hot attire.  There’s more!  As you visit each business you’ll receive a recipe card with the business’ favorite heart friendly recipe.  Collect as many as you can and head to the binding station to put your collection together and receive a few bonus recipes.

Throughout the month of February we hope at participating businesses you’ll round up for the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women®.  It’s amazing how quickly some loose change can add up to make a difference in people’s lives.

Did you know 1 out of 3 women die from heart disease?   Many people don’t know this is the number 1 killer of women, which is why National Wear Red Day was developed by the American Heart Association and the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute in 2003.  Be red hot and wear red on February 6, 2015 to raise awareness about heart disease and stroke that many people still believe affects more men than women!  Just think how easy it is to help others by what you wear and letting people know about the prevalence of heart disease.
