 The HeartThrob Ball is one of the most successful charity fundraiser
 events in the Washington, DC area. This black tie party is firmly
 established on the Washington social calendar and last year's event
 attracted over 1,500 guests from the area's legal, financial, medical,
 and government communities---all while raising money to help the
 American Heart Association in their fight against heart disease and

 In Washington art usually imitates our reality, but next weekend the
 tables are turned: This year we've looked West to Hollywood for
 inspiration, and we offer you a taste of the panache, the pizazz, and
 the Ritz of the famous HeartThrobs of the silver screen. Everywhere
 you look you'll see the cues and cuts of heroes, heroines, moments,
 and sets immortalized in popular culture.

 Not a movie buff? Not a problem! Come out to enjoy a great party for
 a superb cause at a time of year when cherry blossoms bloom, when
 rekindled flames shake off the cold of winter and flicker again, and
 when the roots of new romance find water.

                             *    *    *

 The event will take place again this year at the colossal Ronald
 Reagan Building, a landmark in its own right in a city of monuments
 (see http://yp.washingtonpost.com/E/V/WASDC/0024/89/58/cs1.html for
 more on this impressive structure).

 This year's committee members and hosts are committed to continuing
 the tradition of upgrading and updating the Ball, and building on
 the great record of success this event has enjoyed, and we have
 taken significant steps to ensure an easy flow of stars, fans, and
 paparazzi throughout the facility, and quick service at the twenty-
 plus bars.

 Be sure to stop by and check out the cast of characters at the
 Breakfast at Tiffany's Champagne Bar and try a special new Tanqueray
 Gin at the 007 Martini Bar!

 Valet parking is available, but we recommend you make use of public
 transportation (the Reagan Building is above the Federal Triangle
 Metrorail station) and taxicabs (for detailed information about the
 area cab system, see http://dcpages.com/Travel/Reviews/taxi.shtml).

                             *    *    *

 Got music? Stomp, swing, clap, and groove to the uniquely contagious
 dance music of the Velveteens at the 2000 HeartThrob Ball. Their
 horns, their drums, their guitars, their keyboards, and their kicks
 will make you a fan too (for a recent Washington Post review of the
 band, see http://yp.washingtonpost.com/E/E/WASDC/0001/60/92/).

 The Velveteens are the latest great act from the fertile musical
 soil of Williamsburg, Virginia, and the College of William and Mary.
 In little over a year since relocating to the Nation's Capital the
 band has recorded two CDs and has earned a backlog of gigs and are
 already a staple at several of the area's most popular venues.

 Ten pieces strong, the Velveteens are led by the frenetic Wilson
 Rickerson. Ben Miller plays lead guitar alongside band members
 Julie Cleveland (keyboard, flute), Todd Stevens (bass), Blake
 Surbey (drums), Timothy Shaw (trumpet), Matt Larsen (trombone),
 T.J. Walls (trombone), Ryan Perroy (baritone saxophone, tenor
 saxophone), and Martha Koch (alto saxophone). See band member bios
 at http://www.thevelveteens.com/bios.html.

 The Velveteens are more than a band---they're a show; and they know
 how to work a crowd. 

 THREE BANDS? The hip sounds of Washington's own, Eastern Standard
 Time (http://www.EasternStandardTime.com) and the smooth Latin
 rhythms of Bossalingo (http://www.Bossalingo.com) will start off
 the evening with healthy doses of Bossa Nova, Samba, Salsa, Jazz,
 Ska, Soul, Funk, Reggae, and more---fused together to defy labeling.

                             *    *    *

 AFTER THE SHOW, wind down the night with fellow revelers at the
 official HeartThrob Ball afterhours party at Shelly's Back Room

 Located just near the Reagan Building at 1331 F Street NW, this is
 a bar with great cigars for those who want them---and a great state-
 of-the-art ventilation system for those don't. Brandy snifters,
 designer martini glasses, leather chairs, humidor lined walls, and
 diverse music provide atmosphere; tasty food, skillfully mixed
 drinks, and microbrewed beer supply the rest.

                             *    *    *

 Food, drink, music, dancing, and merriment are not the only acts we

 The mission of the American Heart Association is the reduction of
 disability and death from cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Heart
 disease is the number one killer in the District of Columbia and
 the nation. Diseases of the heart kill more people than cancer,
 diabetes and AIDS combined, and it is only through the continued
 support of qualified research projects and tailored educational
 opportunities that we will bridge the gap between current knowledge
 and future lifesaving techniques.

 The American Heart Association, National Capital Area Council is a
 501(c)(3) registered non-profit organization. All contributions
 over the fair market value are tax-deductible as provided by law.
