Buy a heart, save a life

Through the end of February, Olympic Cellars will help raise funds for the Olympic Medical Center Foundation's Red, Set, Go! Campaign, inspiring women to become educated to improve their heart health.

Walter Massey, of Massey

Copper, and jeweler Michael Smith donated their time to make the hearts. Olympic Cellars is selling the Love Yourself-inscribed copper heart necklaces at the winery, 255410 Highway

101, Port Angeles, and online at

The project is Olympic Cellars' way of supporting the American Heart Association's work to raise awareness about heart disease and its prevention.

Olympic Medical Center will receive $5 of the necklaces' $15 price to buy portable defibrillators. They will be placed in public venues in Sequim and Port Angeles.

Massey created and inscribed the copper hearts, and Smith added a copper jump ring, red or black satin cord and a necklace clasp.

Both businesses made these hearts at cost, allowing Olympic Cellars to donate 33 percent of their price to Olympic Medical Center.

The 2008 copper heart necklace is a symbol and reminder to "Love Yourself and Your Heart."
