Holy cow! We are ecstatic to announce that last night was a RECORD BREAKING event for our organization. We had 460 people attend & RAISED A LITTLE OVER $20,000!!!!! WE don’t want to overuse all caps but THAT IS AMAZING!!
At the event , Emily shared the verse Micah 7:9 ‘God will bring me out of my darkness into the light & I will see the goodness.’ This is the GOOD that has come from having children facing congenital heart disease. Not just the money raised to help families in need but the lives touched through the event last night & the organization all year. Thank you to everyone for coming & supporting Help-A-Heart!
Special thanks to Mandy Diggins for being an awesome Auction Co-Chair with Emily Graber & to Melissa Sprague Hooper, Co-Founder, & Wendy Meyer, Support Group Leader, for all of their help! SO MANY people contributed in some way to make this event a success from setting up & tearing down, to volunteering in the soda bar, registration desk or kids check in, to making calls & picking up donations! Thank. You.
