ABOUT THE EVENT
Friendly Feud is a light-hearted, laughter-filled evening of fundraising modeled after TV’s popular Family Feud. Guests enjoy food and drink while watching the main feature in order to raise awareness about heart failure (HF) as well as much-needed funds to benefit the HeartBrothers’ organizational programs.
Friendly Feud features competition between (5-6) 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.
Fantastic prizes are awarded throughout the night, including getaways, round-trip airfare, and dinner at four-star restaurants. An array of exciting live and silent auction items are also available for bidding.

On September 27th the HeartBrothers Foundation held their first Friendly Feud event to raise awareness about Heart Failure and to raise funds to help HeartBrothers with their mission to Help Heart Failure patients and their loved ones navigate living a life with Heart Failure and all its complication. As part of the event six of the New England centers competed in a “Family Feud” type game show. The teams were from MGH, UMass, MMC, BIDMC , Rhode Island hospital and Tufts. The competition was friendly yet fierce and after two rounds it came down to a close round between Tufts and MGH. Which Tufts was able to win on the very last question. The Tufts team participated in a plaque award ceremony on Nov 5th where HeatBrothers co- founder; Patrick Sullivan presented the Tufts team members with their plaques.

WHY FRIENDLY FEUD?
FACT: Almost 6 million Americans suffer from heart failure.
FACT: Heart transplants and LVAD placements in New England (and throughout the country) are on the rise.
In order for the HeartBrothers 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.
