A Celebration of creating and sharing. Our evening celebrates: our work and mission; our donors and volunteers; and — most importantly — the lives saved and improved because of everyone’s effort. The Heart Ball promises to be an engaging evening of fun and passion bringing community and philanthropic leaders together. Last year, our Heart Ball campaign raised just over $71 million nation-wide allowing us to fund life-saving research and prevention programs in your community and across the country.
Building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Our mission drives everything we do.

Heart Ball Emcee:
For 35 years, WBAB Afternoon Drive host Fingers has been a fixture in Long Island radio and a driving force in the ever-evolving Long Island music scene. Since his early days as a WBAB Rock Van driver and lighting guy for local bands (where he acquired his “Fingers” moniker), Fingers’ passion and positivity has resulted in him becoming one of Long Island’s most popular personalities. His encyclopedic knowledge of Classic Rock, incredible storytelling prowess and video game skills are dwarfed only by his generosity and selfless attitude. Over the past 15 years, his charity motorcycle rides, including the “New Year’s Day Cold Finger Run” and “Sticky Finger Run” have raised over $500,000 for local pediatric cancer charities. When he’s not riding his Harley or hanging with his two daughters, Fingers enjoys cooking, editing video on his iPhone X and checking out live music all over the tristate area. He can be heard on 102.3 WBAB every weekday from 2pm-7pm.
