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!

 A special thanks to PICS foundation, Edwards Life Sciences, Elixir Medical Corporation, and Venus Medtech for their sponsorship of the Red Tie Ball.
