The Illinois Chapter is a group of volunteers dedicated to raising awareness and money to support CHF’s mission of  funding the most promising research to advance the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of congenital heart defects- the #1 birth defect in the U.S.

Red Tie Ball Update
Our inaugural Red Tie Ball was a huge success! Giant thanks to our generous donors, sponsors and volunteers.  We grossed over $200,000– potentially funding two or more CHD research grants!

Stay tuned for photos and videos from this wonderful evening: saving children’s lives, one heart at a time!
A special thanks to PICS foundation, Edwards Life Sciences, Elixir Medical Corporation, and Venus Medtech for their sponsorship of the Red Tie Ball.
