About Us


Friends of Heart was born in 2017 at Flatiron Grille here in Jackson, TN. There are many who served as creators of this much-needed LOCAL heart and vascular care initiative. Several of those present that evening had been involved with a national non-profit and although that organization does great things the funds being raised were not coming back to our community for this reason friends of heart exist today! We have twenty board members with Co-Chairs Bob Arrington and Janet Silver and one executive director.
