Save a Heart
An Epic Evening of Fun

The Congenital Heart Center at University of Michigan Health C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital invites you to the 31st annual Save A Heart Gala on Saturday, February 24, 2024, at the North Campus Research Complex in Ann Arbor, beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Guests will enjoy an evening filled with live music courtesy of the renowned Spazmatics, delectable cuisine and drinks, and the opportunity to participate in silent and live auctions. All proceeds will directly benefit life-saving research, drive clinical innovation, and provide essential assistance for Little Victors and their families.

We are honored to have Jay Towers from Fox 2 Detroit and 100.3 WNIC as our emcee for the evening as we present special awards, uplifting patient stories, and highlight our innovative clinical research initiatives.

Attend the event and help give kids with heart defects the best life possible. It’s easy to become a pediatric heart disease champion — no cape or mask necessary, just the extraordinary power of kindness, compassion, and generosity.

We can’t wait to see you there!

Save a Heart. Change a Life. Join a Heroic Effort.

Congenital heart defects (CHD) are the most common type of birth defect, affecting nearly one out of every 110 children born in this country. Of the children who have CHD, one in four will need medical or surgical interventions before their first birthday. Another group of children born with structurally normal hearts will develop heart disease during childhood. For both groups of children, their health care needs will continue for the rest of their lives.

Team up with us to give children with congenital and acquired heart disease, and their families, the advanced care and support they need to live their best lives.
