Wear Red Day is the national kickoff to Heart Month. It is designed to raise awareness for heart disease and stroke. The Red Couch Tour is a way to further that mission.
“We invite people to join us on the couch and share their ‘heart or stroke story’, snap a picture, and share it. Heart disease and stroke touch us all,” said Rachel Furnish, Go Red for Women Director.
Attendees are encouraged to take pictures with provided Go Red signage on the red couch at My Favorite Things and post to social media using the hashtag, #GoRedCouch. The public is encouraged to take “selfies” on the couch and post to social media, also using the hashtag, #GoRedCouch.
Each person who posts a #GoRedCouch picture to social media will be entered to win a $500 shopping spree to My Favorite Things.
My Favorite Things is Lexington’s premiere store for first quality luxury furniture, gifts, and home décor. The store is located in Hamburg behind Forcht Bank.
