Kids at Heart Luncheon tomorrow

The Kids at Heart lunch has been raising money for Sacred Heart Children's Hospital for 12 years, ensuring that Spokane children don't have to travel long distances to receive world-class care. This year's Kids at Heart luncheon is tomorrow, February 27, 11:30am at the Spokane Convention Center.

Funds from Kids at Heart have been used to purchase high-tech isolettes for at-risk babies in their Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, buy a specialized anesthesia machine for their tiniest cardiac patients, support the pain-free and palliative care programs, and has helped build an entire 24/7 Emergency & Trauma Center just for kids.

Last year, luncheon guests raised money to establish a new pediatric mental health program, ensuring that children in crisis receive immediate, life-saving help, even if a hospital bed is not available. Funds raised at this year's lunch will support Emergency and Trauma Services. Sacred Heart Children's Hospital is the region's only Pediatric Level II Trauma Center, which means that critically injured children can be treated here at home rather than flown out of town.
