American Heart AssociationMy nephew has a heart condition. My family members have had strokes. Most people today have been or know someone who has been affected by heart disease.  Do you?  Omni Amelia Island Plantation is doing our part to open our hearts and support the American Heart Association with our upcoming All American Carnival and Bash benefiting the American Heart Association at The Shops of Amelia Island Plantation on Friday, August 2nd from 5-8pm!

American Heart Association

The American Heart Association is the nation’s oldest, largest voluntary organization devoted to fighting cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Heart disease – also called cardiovascular disease and coronary heart disease – is a simple term used to describe several problems related to plaque buildup in the walls of the arteries, or atherosclerosis. As the plaque builds up, the arteries narrow, making it more difficult for blood to flow and creating a risk for heart attack or stroke. Other types of heart disease include heart failure, an irregular heartbeat – or arrhythmia – and heart valve problems. Many conditions can affect our hearts like cholesterol, blood pressure, diabetes and more.

All American Carnival and Bash

Enjoy a family friendly carnival at the weekly Boardwalk Bash at Marché Burette on Friday, August 2nd from 5-8pm with proceeds benefiting the American Heart Association. Take a hayride around The Shops or play carnival games like the cake walk or knockdown game. Throw a pie in the face of an executive team member of the Omni Amelia Island Plantation! Let the kids burn of some energy in the bounce house or get their face painted! Or kids of all ages can try their skills at the new S.A.F.E Archery.  Open your hearts and join us as we support the American Heart Association in overcoming heart disease!
