Lucy Henglefelt was 28, leading a full, happy life with a newborn baby, when everything changed, in a heartbeat. Or more appropriately, with her heartbeat. Lucy was in heart failure.

She had known something wasn't quite right, but she ignored the signs, until she couldn't anymore. Lucy now has a pacemaker and a new outlook on life, even though she may one day face the necessity of a heart transplant. She is determined to help other young women who may also have heart issues they're ignoring.

To that end she partnered with Sanford Health and the Sanford Health Foundation to create the Lucy's Labor of Love Fund, with the goal of educating and offering financial assistance to younger women (in particular, younger moms) with heart disease.

In an effort to support those goals, they are hosting The Runway Goes Red on Thursday, February 22, from 6 to 9 PM at the Meadow Barn at Country Orchards by Harrisburg. This fun event features "red carpet treatment" for all attendees, with the chance to have your photo taken in the photo booth area.

All guests are asked to wear black or white, unless you are a heart disease survivor, in which case you are asked dress in red. The Runway Goes Red fashion show begins at 7 PM and all the models are local women who are survivors of heart disease.

Glamour Defined in Harrisburg is providing all the fashions, featuring two collections, casual and evening wear. They will also have a pop-up shop there so guests can buy the fashions they see in the show with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Lucy's Labor of Love fund.
