Bowers Museum to “Go Red” with the American Heart Association for the 13th Annual National Go Red Day on Friday, February 6th

SANTA ANA, CALIF. – The Bowers Museum in Santa Ana will be among the numerous locations nationwide to “Go Red” on Friday, February 6, as part of the 13th Annual American Heart Association Go Red Day promoting women’s heart health. Starting on February 6, the Bowers Museum’s iconic Mission-style Bell Tower will be bathed in brilliant red light to help raise awareness about the importance of heart health among women. Located at 2002 N. Main St. in Santa Ana, the Bowers Museum is a familiar sight for thousands of daily commuters driving along Main Street.

The annual Go Red For Women campaign raises awareness that heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, and encourages them to take preventive measures to reduce their risk. The movement harnesses the energy, passion and power women and those who love them, to band together and collectively wipe out heart disease. On a national level, the Go Red For Women movement has resulted in 650,000 women’s lives being saved over the last 10 years.

On Friday, February 6, the following Santa Ana organizations, businesses and schools will “Go Red” including:
