Making an Impact with the American Heart Association


Carter's Collective proudly supported an event for the Pinebelt’s chapter of The American Heart Association (AHA) that was truly special. The event brought together a diverse group of art enthusiasts, health advocates, and philanthropists, all united by their shared dedication to the AHA's life-saving mission. 

The Pinebelt chapter of the AHA organized the "Art for Heart" event, a captivating showcase that blended artistry and philanthropy in an effort to raise funds for cardiovascular research and education.

Carter’s Collective contributed a beautiful freshwater pearl paperclip necklace and bracelet to be auctioned at the event. The proceeds made from the auction benefited the Pinebelt chapter of AHA, supporting heart health within our region. Along with this donation, Chae Carter, the owner and president of Carter’s Collective also personally presented a custom, handmade heart shaped medallion to the Woman of Impact who raised the most for the cause this year.

Our highly skilled jeweler, Blake, meticulously handcrafted the custom heart medallion using recycled gold, making it a sustainable work of art. Notably, the medallion features eleven natural diamonds in a variety of shapes and sizes and two rubies as a nod to the American Heart Association’s signature color red. This custom creation not only embodies beauty and sustainability but also reflects this amazing woman’s heartfelt commitment to a worthy cause.

The collective efforts of everyone involved, participants, sponsors, and generous donors like Carter's Collective, resulted in overwhelming success. Through the auction donations, including our freshwater pearl necklace and bracelet, over $180,000 was raised in total. This significant amount of funds will directly contribute to the American Heart Association's vital initiatives, supporting critical research, education, and advocacy programs aimed at preventing stroke and heart disease.

We were thrilled for the opportunity to be part of this awe-inspiring event, supporting such a remarkable cause! It served as a powerful reminder of the impact we can make when we come together to support our community.
