See you next year: February 25, 2020
Don’t miss the “funnest” lunch of the year!
The Kids at Heart lunch has been raising money for Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital for 13 years, ensuring that Spokane children don’t have to travel long distances to receive world-class care.
Funds from Kids at Heart have been used to establish a new pediatric mental health program, purchase high-tech isolettes for at-risk babies in our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, buy a specialized anesthesia machine for our tiniest cardiac patients, support our pain-free and palliative care programs, and even help build an entire 24/7 Emergency & Trauma Center just for kids!
Last year, luncheon guests heard how Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital – and the entire community –stepped up to help in the wake of the Freeman shooting. Funds raised purchased equipment that could be lifesaving during a crisis or mass casualty.
This Year’s Focus
What helps Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital the most? The ability to be flexible with gifts from generous donors to ensure programs, equipment and services are available to our patients at a moment’s notice.
This year, money raised at Kids at Heart will go toward our Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals fund. These funds stay local and allow us to meet our patients’ most critical needs. CMN Hospitals has paid for things like:
The NIC View video system allows parents and family members to bond with their new baby when they are separated because of their infant’s hospitalization.
A portable echo machine enables children in outlying areas to undergo critical tests locally, without having to travel to Spokane and undergo a hospital stay.
3-D printed models let surgeons “practice” complex heart procedures.
Beads of Courage lets children record and tell their own stories using colorful beads as symbols of courage and hope.
Memory Making helps grieving families create tangible and meaningful items to remember their loved one.
Birthday celebrations help make a child’s hospital stay a little brighter!
