Flora merchants roll out the red carpet in February each year for “Paint the Town Red” which raises awareness for heart health. According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the number one cause of death for women. For PTTR, Flora Family Medicine and Carroll County Health Clinic offer free health screenings. Luminaries, which line the fronts of participating merchants, can be purchased at most downtown businesses with proceeds benefiting the American Heart Association. You can inscribe your luminary with as many names as desired and retrieve it after the event as a keepsake.
Fun PTTR activities include free limousine rides, a style show, photo booth, ring cleaning, and most importantly, health screenings.
To help promote Heart Health, ladies are asked to wear their favorite red accessory to the event.
