Philadelphia Heart Ball Honors Football Hall of Famer for Foundation’s Community Impact Work

On Saturday, February 22, the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum was transformed into a special night of community and philanthropy for the 63rd Annual Philadelphia Heart Ball.

This year, the Heart of Philadelphia honor was awarded to former Philadelphia Eagles safety and Pro Football Hall of Famer Brian Dawkins and his wife, Connie for their substantial work with the Brian Dawkins Impact Foundation. The American Heart Association celebrated their mission to provide inspiration, education and resources to youth, families and communities in need.

Also honored was W.W. Smith Charitable Trust who received the Cooper Award.

Over 600 supporters and guests celebrated the mission of the American Heart Association and raised money to support the AHA’s efforts in community impact, education, advocacy, and scientific research. To date, the Heart Ball 2020 campaign has raised $1.9M.

Special thank you to the 2020 Heart Ball sponsors, Penn Medicine and WSFS Bank, as well as the many generous donors.
