HeartKids Geographe 2009 Gala Ball 2nd May

Published On April 13, 2009

Don’t miss the HeartKids Ball, organised by HeartKids WA, on Saturday 2nd May in Margaret River, WA, to raise much needed money for children with heart disease. With six babies born with heart disease in Australia every day and the Children’s Cardiac Centre at Perth’s Princess Margaret Hospital performing 110 operations, 1600 echocardiograms and 70 cardiac catheter procedures on heartkids every year, funds are desperately needed.

HeartKids WA not only supports the families of these children, it works to ensure the Children’s Cardiac Centre provides the best possible equipment and facilities for children with heart conditions and their families.

HeartKids WA is a registered charity that supports families who have a child born with a heart condition or who develop a heart condition during childhood. HeartKids offers a diverse support program, fund equipment for the Children’s Cardiac Centre and support childhood heart disease research.

Established in 1979, HeartKids is incorporated and offers tax deductibility status. HeartKids is partially funded by the WA Health Department, but otherwise self-fund activities by way of subscriptions, donations, grants, fundraising projects and support from community-minded companies. Current membership stands at 500.

Albury Enviro Bags is supplying shoulder satchel bags for the function, which will be hosted by Ernie Dingo.
