Children’s Heart Foundation Honors Las Vegas Philanthropist Dena duBoef-Roth
With at least one in 100 children in the United States born with a congenital heart defect each year, it’s time to raise awareness and honor the champions fighting against what can be a deadly pediatric disease. On Thursday, Sept. 27 at 11 a.m., Las Vegas ladies come together to support Children’s Heart Foundation and honor Philanthropist of the Year, Dena duBoef-Roth at the Inaugural Hearts for Charitea at the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas Acacia Ballroom (3960 S. Las Vegas Blvd.).
Research, education, and family assistance are at the heart of Children’s Heart Foundation’s mission. In the United States, CHD is 60 times more prevalent than childhood cancer, and nearly twice as many children die each year as die from all forms of childhood cancers combined. Research, still grossly underfunded in the field of pediatric cardiology, is the greatest hope for children living with a CHD a chance to live long, healthy lives due to medical and surgical advances and expert care. It is the hope this event continues to improve the level of care provided to those impacted by CHD.
“I am honored to be recognized as Philanthropist of The Year by the Children’s Heart Foundation,” says honoree Dena duBoef-Roth. “What is most important to me is the exceptional care that the doctors and nurses have provided not only for our daughter but for all families and children. We are so lucky to have them in our community.”
Women are invited to don their best party dress, break out the pearls, and mix and mingle over afternoon high tea and champagne while supporting Children’s Heart Foundation and their mission to provide financial, emotional and educational support for children living with heart conditions in Nevada.
