SCA Foundation Announces Jazzy Kick-Off Event for 2012 Highmark 5K Walk

PITTSBURGH--Little E’s jazz club at 949 Liberty Ave. in downtown Pittsburgh will be the site of a kick-off event to introduce the newest Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation heroes and call attention to the Foundation’s participation in this year’s Highmark Walk For a Healthy Community on May 19 at Stage AE on Pittsburgh’s North Shore.

Passers-by Vanessa Franco and Ranmal Samarasinghe, two quick-thinking Pitt medical students, helped rescue KDKA TV news anchor Susan Koeppen in November when she suffered sudden cardiac arrest while jogging in the Shadyside area of Pittsburgh. Susan will be joining the Foundation's team at the 5K walk. Susan has nominated Vanessa and Ranmal for the Foundation's People Saving People(tm) award.

Entertainment for the evening will be provided pro-bono by The Jimmy Z Trio, interpreters of “The Great American Songbook,” comprised of standards written by songwriting legends Johnny Mercer, Cole Porter and the Gershwins, just to name a few.

Hors d’oeuvres will be served, courtesy of Little E's; meals and drinks will be available. So join us for a good time and join in the effort to stop unnecessary deaths due to sudden cardiac arrest.
