Newport on the Levee hosts wine walk

NEWPORT, KY (FOX19) - Newport on the Levee hosted the 6th Annual Wine Walk on Wednesday as part of American Heart Healthy month.

The walk allowed attendees visiting the various venues to sample wine selections and heart healthy hors d'oeuvres.

Organizers had a special message for women. "More women die from heart disease than any other disease, including breast cancer, so we're trying to get the word out and make women aware of heart-healthy lifestyles," said Debbie Hoffer, Go Red For Women.

Some of the venues that were part of the walk included Bar Louie, Jefferson Hall and Brio.

The walk benefited the American Heart Association.
