On Saturday, February 9, Hannibal Regional Hospital Foundation will be hosting the fourth annual Sweetheart Swing Dinner and Dance to raise funds for the HelpingHearts Fund, the Cardiology Services Patient Assistance Fund at Hannibal Regional Hospital. The fund helps cardiology patients in their quest to recover and heal from events associated with cardiology issues.


This year’s Sweetheart Swing Dinner and Dance will be held at the Quality Inn in Hannibal, Missouri. The evening will begin at 6 p.m. and include a delicious dinner, entertainment, a dance contest with dancing to swinging sounds of the Gateway City Big Band, an 18-piece jazz orchestra from St. Louis.

February is Heart Month and Hannibal Regional Hospital Foundation is committed to supporting  the cardiology needs of this area.  The HelpingHearts Fund is used in a number of ways, including:

  • To assist patients diagnosed with congestive heart failure in the critical, daily monitoring of their weight by providing the resources to purchase a weighing scale.
  • To help patients with transportation expenses after they have been referred to Cardiac Rehabilitation for recovery from a heart attack or a major cardiac procedure such as coronary bypass.
