“Beat the Drum” is a benefit concert to raise awareness surrounding cardiovascular disease and stroke. It is slated to take place on Sunday, April 22, 2012.
All proceeds will support the efforts of the American Heart Association (AHA). The event’s sponsor, Gamma Chi, the Northwestern University chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., is upholding their international organization’s partnership with the AHA in hopes of tackling these major issues. Whether the proceeds benefit further healthcare research or provide much needed resources for patients with a heart condition, all parties involved hope that Beat the Drum will do major good in the areas of awareness and prevention.
