Shopping local doesn’t have to stop with what you pay for food and clothes. As the season of buying, and of giving and receiving, quickly approaches, also consider the disposable income you put into charity — and whether those funds could be used in the community you call home.

Sun’s out, so get your guns out. It’s time to start practicing for the Clays for Cardio Shoot-Out benefitting the Cardiovascular Foundation of Southeast Texas.

Founded by Dr. Rudy Sotolongo, the foundation was inspired by what principal investigators learned from more than 100 clinical trials over the past 20 years at the Southeast Texas Clinical Research Center (SETCRC). Those trials evaluated both medical treatments and devices designed to improve cardiovascular outcomes.
