American Heart Association
Bri and Daniel Cheung, founders of En Belle Époque, were recently selected into the 2021 Inaugural Class of “Leaders for Life” for the American Heart Association (AHA). Their goal is to raise $10,000 for the Houston Heart Ball, one of the largest annual events that pulls a large portion of AHA’s funding and outreach.

DID YOU KNOW...
Heart disease is the #1 killer in the US - above all forms of cancer combined and even above the recent impacts from COVID. It will cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year.
Houston currently sits as one of the highest regions impacted by heart disease and stroke. Minorities and lower income divisions are most impacted, where you’ll find a shocking 23-year gap in life expectancy.
In 2019, an increase of 50 people died each day from heart disease, and in 2020, this number will dramatically increase due to the devastating COVID impacts.
