Little Hearts

Annual Picnic


Our 22nd annual picnic is scheduled for Sunday, June 2nd, 2019.  

Come join us in a day of celebration, meet fellow members and their heart-child and our Adult CHD Survivors!  Some members join us annually while many who join us for their first time.  If you'd like to attend, here's how you register:

  • Complete our Eventbrite registration before May 25th. This form will tell you all that you need to know for the picnic. Please note you will register and pay with Eventbrite, you won't need to do anything on the Little Hearts website. 

Check out the photos in our Media Gallery  of all the "heart-kids" that joined us in previous years. We added photos for their date of birth, oldest to youngest as well as listing their heart defect underneath their name.

This is the first year we won't be able to provide food and drinks.  So please pack up a cooler with drinks and sandwiches for you and your family.  

We will be providing a moonwalk, a raffle and a fundraiser table with picnic t-shirts and other items from our online store.  We will have two professional photographers - one who'll takes candid shots of the heart-kids for our Media Gallery and the other who'll takes Little Hearts "Picture of Hope" at 2:00.  

Our event is open from 9:00-4:00.

  • Looking to meet other families who have the same diagnosis as your heart-child?  Once again, we'll be color coding your name tags and will have designated areas for you to meet other members.  We will provide a chart by diagnosis along with the location of where to meet at the Welcome Table the day of the picnic.  There is no start or end time on this and it's all up to you if you're interested and when you'd like to meet other parents.  Many times our little ones dictate on when we parents can do this!
