The Brown County Heart Association hosted their annual Heart Gala fundraiser at the Brownwood Country Club on Saturday.

This year's theme was the Great Gatsby where people dressed up in their best 20's attire. The fundraiser aims to bring awareness on the topic of heart disease. The 15th annual event had a silent and live auction which included an autographed helmet from football quarterback Tony Romo and an autograph from artist Jimmy Buffet.

Around 150 people were in attendance. The Brownwood Regional Medical Center was also part of the event and announced their new program that helps detect heart disease early.

The event hopes to raise more than last year which collected nearly $26,000.
