The HeartBrothers Foundation (HBF) and Heart Failure Society of America (HFSA) are partnering to host a light-hearted, laughter-filled evening of fundraising on Friday March 1st, 2019.
Friendly Feud is a game night, modeled after TV’s popular Family Feud, that will raise awareness about heart failure (HF) as well as much-needed funds to benefit the two organizations’ programs.
The night of the event, guests will enjoy food and drink while watching the main feature. Fantastic prizes will be awarded throughout the night, including: getaways, round-trip airfare, and dinner at four-star restaurants. An array of exciting live and silent auction items will also be available for bidding.
Friendly Feud will feature competition between (6) teams from the major heart transplant centers in New England. Similar to the popular TV version, competing teams will engage in a friendly trivia-based feud, racing to announce the most popular answers in each category. The team scoring the highest points will win prizes, and additional prizes will be randomly awarded to audience members.
FACT: Almost 6 million Americans suffer from heart failure.
FACT: Heart transplants and LVAD placements in New England (and across the country) are on the rise.
In order for us to meet the increasing levels of support for those with heart failure, we need to:
1 – Raise additional funding, now more than ever.
2 – Raise awareness about HF and its challenges.
The HeartBrothers Foundation was founded by HF, LVAD, and heart transplant survivors. Our sole mission is to bring resources together to help HF patients and their loved ones survive a life with HF and all its challenges. We have helped 500+ HF families in our four short years and are proud to now extend our giving beyond US Transplant Region 1. HBF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization headquartered in Marlborough, MA.
The Heart Failure Society of America, Inc. represents the Americas’ first organized effort by HF experts to provide a forum for those interested in cardiac function, HF, and congestive heart failure (CHF) research, and patient care. The mission of HFSA is to provide a platform to improve and expand HF care through collaboration, education, innovation, research and advocacy. HFSA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization headquartered in Rockville, MD.
