Clermont Animal CARE Humane Society is having a New Hope Gala with a fun Monte Carlo theme. The proceeds benefit the New Hope Fund – designated to treat animals who require extra care and special attention due to medical or behavioral challenges that cannot be funded from our limited shelter budget. The generous support and goodwill from our local business community for this fundraiser will greatly assist in its success and our ability to extend the very best care to all animals who come through our doors. We believe that every healthy and treatable animal should be saved and we are working hard every day to implement life-saving programs for animals in the community and in our care.

Tickets are $75 each. There will be dinner, fun games, baskets, silent auctions and so much more! Mollie Watson from Q102 will be our EMCEE.

2019 Conquering CHD Walk

09:00 am

Saturday, September 21, 2019 from 9:00a.m.-1:00p.m.
Mirror Lake in Eden Park, Cincinnati, Ohio

On Saturday, September 21, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Eden Park we are hosting our second annual Conquering CHD Walk that will give children and families with CHD a day to celebrate their journey with other “heart families” that walk a similar path.

Join us for walk, activities, food, raffle and silent auction.

WHO WE ARE?
The Pediatric Congenital Heart Association – Ohio is a state chapter of the national PCHA organization whose mission is to “Conquer Congenital Heart Disease.” We accomplish this through collaboration with patients, parents, providers, & partner organizations to improve quality in care and health outcomes through CHD education, support, research, and awareness. Our partnerships with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Nationwide Children’s Hospital allow us to deliver care kits,
dinners, and peer support to families of children undergoing critical medical procedures and long hospital stays. Each of our volunteers have experienced a CHD journey and understand its hardships. We aim to improve the lives of those living with CHD wherever they are on their journey.

WHY WE WALK?
Each year, 1 in 100 babies are born with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD). CHD is the life-long consequence of a heart defect, or a structural abnormality of the heart present at birth. It is the most common birth defect. In 2019, in the U.S. alone, 40,000 babies will be born with CHD. Of those, 25% will undergo life-saving open heart surgery or other interventions to survive. While there is much hope, and survival rates have climbed in the last 20 years, there is no cure. CHD requires a lifetime of specialized care. There is much we do not understand about CHD, what causes it, and how to prevent it. The Conquering CHD Walk will help raise much needed funds and awareness.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Donate to the 2019 Conquering CHD Walk! Become a sponsor. Start a team, fundraise, like our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages and share our stories on social media. Support your local heart hero! Be #CHDAware. Join our cause to help support thousands of babies each year!
Together, we are Conquering CHD!
