ORANGE BEACH, Ala. (WKRG) — WKRG will join distinguished American Heart Association supporters for the Art for Heart VIP party Thursday at Melanie Martin Interiors in Orange Beach.
Auction items for the Baldwin County Art for Heart Gala will be revealed and honorees will be introduced including Bayside Academy Coaches Mark Lasseter and Phil Lazenby. In 2017, Lazenby administered CPR to Lasseter when Lasseter collapsed from a heart attack at school.
“I just knew what to do because I’d been trained to do it,” said Lazenby in a 2018 interview with WKRG’s Rose Ann haven. Both men support The American Heart Association for promoting lifesaving CPR training throughout the community including schools.
Lasseter said, “CPR absolutely saved my life and it has changed my life. I’m a different person today than I was then. I wake up every morning and I say, thank you…I am breathing again.”
You are also help save lives by participating in The American Heart Association’s 27th annual Baldwin Art for Heart Gala and Live Auction. It will be held the evening of Saturday, April 5th from 5:30 until 8:30 at The Old Barn at Chapel Farm in Fairhope.
