It's time to raise a glass to heart health. 

On Thursday, Oct. 3, Festival of Wines returns for its 15th year benefitting the American Heart Association of Arkansas.

Once again, Dickey-Stephens Park in North Little Rock will play host to the biggest wine festival in central Arkansas, where guests will be able to choose from hundreds of wines from around the world to pair with eats from more than 17 of Little Rock's best local restaurants.

Chairing this year's event — which also includes a list of coveted auction items are Karen and Terry Masching. The presenting sponsor is the Arkansas Heart Hospital, and the wine sponsor is Moon & Central Distributors.

Festival of Wines tickets are available online and at the gate. Click here to get yours.
