  • A Night To Conquer CHD - Virtual Gala

    A Night To Conquer CHD - Virtual Gala

    Date: February 27, 2021 7pm Location: Hershey, PA

    This fundraising event will be held virtually on February 27, 2021. Join us and enjoy Adam Stone Magic, a silent auction, and more as we fight to Conquer CHD together. Everyone’s safety is our top priority, so this year we will be hosting this gala as a virtual event. We are excited to be able to include even more people we serve across the state of Pennsylvania who normally wouldn’t be able to travel to our local gala. As you may be aware, congenital heart disease (CHD) is the most common birth defect, effecting approximately 1 in 100 babies. Often parents receive their child’s diagnosis while pregnant at a routine ultrasound. Even though CHD’s are the most common birth defect, many parents have never heard of their child’s specific diagnosis. Conquering CHD-PA begins our support from the very beginning with our prenatal care packages. This package gives them valuable information with resources to help them start their journey with their life long congenital heart disease. Once their child is born we are able to offer even more support through patient care packages. These care packages are available across the lifespan, and include our prenatal, heart catheritization, and open-heart surgery care packages. This care from birth to adult is the main reason we have changed our name from Pediatric Congenital Heart Association - PA to Conquering CHD - PA, to better reflect our care for CHD patients across the lifespan. Funds raised through this event will help provide resources to patients and families in our community - people who receive care or reside in Pennsylvania. We will also continue to provide CHD support and community awareness through peer to peer meetings, advocacy, community events, and participation in research. Registration to attend is FREE!
