Support for this phenomenal facility will provide assistance to patients and their families and further research into the study of pediatric congenital heart disease.”
The press release noted that “the auction will feature local artists of all ages with a variety of styles and mediums. You may participate by bidding on your favorite piece(s), registering for door prizes, or making a donation to The Heart Center.” The best part about this wonderful event is that all proceeds benefit The Heart Center at Children’s Hospital.
