February is American Heart Month. So, it's fitting that this month we celebrate the American Heart Association as our Leading Business of the Month sponsored by South State Bank.
The local chapter of the American Heart Association has been a member of the chamber since 1995. The goal of the national nonprofit is to create a world free of heart disease and stroke. The organization raises money to fund medial research an educational programs for the community. The national nonprofit was founded by six cardiologists in 1924.
Locally, the American Heart Association is known for two big fundraisers: the Heart Walk, held annually in the fall, and the Heart Ball, a gala style night held each February.

This special promotion, sponsored by South State Bank, recognizes a company that has been a member of Myrtle Beach Area Chamber for a minimum of five years. The business is randomly selected. The company displays a banner at their place of business for one month recognizing them as the Leading Business of the Month.
