This year's Go Red for Women Luncheon will be held Friday, May 18 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Kentucky International Convention Center at 221 s. Fourth Street.

Tickets are $125 each and include an educational breakout session, networking exhibits, free health screenings, a heart-healthy lunch, Macy's Survivor Fashion Show and HBO comedian Jan McInnis, the keynote speaker. WAVE 3's Dawne Gee will serve as one of the event's emcees.
