Veronica Blount Memorial


The Veronica Blount Memorial Foundation was created in 2020 in memory of Veronica Blount who died at the age of 46 from heart disease.

Our flagship event is the Red Shoe Lunch, an event that was started in 2011 and hosted in Atlanta, Georgia. The Red Shoe Lunch (RSL) raised over $21,000 for the American Heart Association in memory of Veronica.

In 2020, after ten years of raising money for AHA, we decided to officially launch the Veronica Blount Memorial Foundation and as of August 8, 2022 we are officially a 501c3 non-profit organization!

Our plans are to increase awareness in the communities we live and expand our outreach to help those with the least resources. Please watch the short video below for more details.

Blood Pressure Monitors for Every Home!

VBMF's Fundraising Initiative 

We believe blood pressure monitors are like smoke detectors, one is needed in every home. Like smoke detectors, blood pressure monitors aid in prevention and help saves lives!

Heart disease is the number one killer of men and women in the United States, yet most people are unaware of this fact. Our goal is to increase awareness and equip families with the resources needed to fight heart disease.

We will provide blood pressure monitors to those in underserved communities. We will go door-to-door providing monitors, partner with the local fire departments to provide monitors and equip local barbershops, hair salons and community centers with monitors so there is community access to blood pressure monitors for those who don't frequently visit a physician.


With a goal to supply 20,000 homes each year, we will need $900,000 annually. That's $45 per home. $45 that can potentially save the lives of not one person, but everyone in the home with access to a monitor. $45 is less than a night out for dinner or a trip to the movies for a family of four. The price you pay for a week of coffee at your favorite coffee shop or three trips to your favorite fast-food chain, could save a life.
