Here at ACHA, we believe that we have the most passionate supporters; the money raised from these volunteer fundraisers is essential to the continuing of our mission.

Cards with Heart
Christine, an ACHA member and CHD survivor, is utilizing her awesome artistic and creative abilities for an ongoing fundraiser to benefit ACHA. She is hand-making greeting cards with a human heart theme and selling her creations on Etsy for $5, each with a portion of the proceeds donated to ACHA.

Congenital Heart Day at Busch Stadium
Returning in May 2014, the annual Congenital Heart Day at Busch Stadium was a success yet again! Our awesome volunteer Lena, along with her committee, sold tickets for the St. Louis Cardinal’s game on the 17th against the Atlanta Braves with a portion from each ticket sale benefiting ACHA along with a few other great organizations. They also sold Congenital Heart Day t-shirts on their Facebook page before the game to increase the amount they raised. Lena and her committee were so successful selling tickets that they were able to take part of the first pitch ceremony before the game! To see photos from the event, check out their Facebook page!
Allie, one of our younger members and CHD survivor, hosted her first annual Heartiversary Gala in February 2014 to both celebrate heart month and the one-year anniversary of her surgery. The event took place in Allentown, PA, and included dinner, drinks, dancing and a silent auction. It was a huge success! You can check out photos from the event on Allie’s website.
ACHA Night at the Pacers
In January 2014, another amazing volunteer, Ryan, coordinated ACHA Night at the Indiana Pacers. The “family night” game tickets included food, drink and a Pacers t-shirt with a portion of the ticket sales donated to ACHA. ACHA was recognized during halftime and Ryan received an autographed Paul George jersey, to be auctioned for the Indianapolis Congenital Heart Walk, for selling over 200 tickets! You can read all about the game and Ryan’s experience planning the game in his blog post on ACHA’s website.
