The Evening Event

A Celebration of creating and sharing. Our evening celebrates: our work and mission; our donors and volunteers; and — most importantly — the lives saved and improved because of everyone’s effort. The Heart Ball promises to be an engaging evening of fun and passion bringing community and philanthropic leaders together. Last year, our Heart Ball campaign raised just over $51 million nation-wide allowing us to fund over $123 million of research and programs across the country and in your community.

~Open your Heart~

Our kids represent the greatest hope for a healthy future, and one of our greatest areas of need. Open Your Heart is an opportunity in the Heart Ball where you can make a donation to help our children and future generations.

Over 36,000 babies born every year with a heart defect. More than 9 million kids overweight. 1 in every 4,000 infants has a stroke. These stats drive both our sense of urgency and our hope. With your help we can change these statistics.
