The 43rd annual Jackson Heart Ball digital experience will be held April 8 from 7-8 p.m. The virtual event, chaired by Sidney and Gregg Harper, will feature a live auction with real-time bidding; an “Open Your Heart” survivor story honoring John Taylor of Natchez; a physician spotlight; and entertainment. The silent auction will take place online beginning in March. Guests will be able to bid on items leading up to the event. Funds raised support local research, community programs, hospital education, CPR training, and more. The Heart Ball is the largest source of revenue for the American Heart Association in Mississippi. Members of the 2021 Executive Leadership Team (from left, back): Abby James, Doug Gunn, Crisler Boone, Sister Dorothea Sondgeroth, Gregg Harper, and Sidney Harper.
