FREE BLOOD PRESSURE SCREENINGS

The Stroke Awareness Foundation partnered with the American Red Cross’ Silicon Valley First Aid Services Team (FAST) to provide training, specialized diagnostic supplies, guidance on how to educate and screen the public for warning signs of stroke.

432 FAST medical first responders, nurses and physicians have been deployed to massive community events such as the Gilroy Garlic Festival, San Jose Jazz Festival, Cinco De Mayo celebration and the Bay to Breakers race. Since 2013, we have provided more than 7,300 free blood pressure checks with in-depth follow-up conversations on stroke education resulting in over 250 doctor referrals. Keep an eye out for our booths!

CELEBRITY BARTENDER NIGHT – BENEFITING THE STROKE AWARENESS FOUNDATION

SINATRA CENTENNIAL PERFORMANCE & GALA – 10/10/15

In this once in a lifetime celebration, Mr. Sinatra, joined by Symphony Silicon Valley, wooed a crowd of nearly 900. It was an incredible evening of fabulous music and behind the scene stories to honor Frank Sinatra’s centennial year through his son, Frank Sinatra Jr. The attendees helped raise over $320,000 to continue the important work of stroke care, advocacy and awareness to improve the outcome for stroke victims.

Many thanks to our generous sponsors:
