3rd Annual Breathtaking Holiday Evening

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation’s When in Need Grandmas Serve (WINGS) Women’s Board gathered to raise funds and spread holiday cheer.  At the third annual “A Breathtaking Holiday Evening” on Wed., Nov. 20, guests were invite to fundraise for the Hospital’s Heart Center. The event, hosted at Mercedes-Benz of Scottsdale, raised more than $90,000 through sales of designer-crafted holiday wreathes, centerpieces, garlands and custom-crafted ornaments, a silent auction, and also through donations from generous sponsors.

WINGS Women’s Board of Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation formed in 2015 to advocate and fund-raise for Phoenix Children’s. Since inception we’ve raised funds to support several areas of the hospital, and this year it’s the Heart Center.

Your support will help Phoenix Children’s patients get the best care, close to home. With your support, we will fund one of the 24 new rooms in the Cardio Vascular Intensive Care Unit to accommodate the growing demand for care. The state-of-the-art intensive care room will feature equipment, lighting and technology that allows surgery to take place right in the patient’s room. Less transportation across the hospital reduces risk for these fragile children.

Mapping the Heart 3D Model

Delivering expert cardiac care includes patient-specific 3D printed heart models. The resulting 3D print is an accurate representation of a patient’s anatomy, and one that surgeons and physicians can use for surgical planning, family consultation and medical education. Thanks to the powerful technology of 3D printing, our expert surgeons can review and evaluate a patient’s heart in three-dimensional form before ever setting foot in the operating room. This leads to life-saving results for patients.

All proceeds from Breathtaking Holiday Evening benefit Phoenix Children’s Hospital and have an impact on hope and healing of patients. A special thank you to our supporters and sponsors.
