2017-2018 Ohio Valley Heart Ball
Meet Your Heart Ball Co-Chairs
John & Melissa Rataiczak have been involved with the Heart Ball since 1994 and this year represents their 20th year to chair the spectacular event. Their passion for volunteering is evident each year at the Ohio Valley Heart Ball, which is held on the last Saturday of February. As a team, they oversee the committee to bring attendees an enjoyable evening full of music, great food, auctions, and most importantly, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years to help fund life-saving research. They have often said that the Heart Ball Saves Lives. They feel the event has endured for so long because of the passion and the drive of the committee members. The committee is comprised of hard working, passionate leaders who are dedicated to raising funds to fight heart disease and stroke.
John & Melissa were originally inspired back in the 90's by their Heart Ball mentors, Aster Sutandi, Ron Presutti, Irene Louda and John Goodman. The Heart Ball history has now come full circle, with John & Melissa serving as mentors to John Goodman's son, Jay and his wife Rachel, along with many other vivacious and dedicated committee members who work so well together. John & Melissa both hope you will be able to attend the 50th Edition of the Heart Ball to see what makes it so special.
