Fight children's heart disease at a wine and beer fundraiser
Heart disease is the #1 birth defect in the nation, affecting children at a rate of nearly 1 in 100 births. Each year more than 300 distinguished members of the community and medical field gather at Jordan’s Family Foundation’s Healthy Starts, Happy Hearts Charity Wine and Beer Tasting. The event raises awareness and funding for research into the causes and treatment of congenital heart diseases.
This year’s tasting, the 10th annual event, is scheduled for Saturday, May 30, from 1 to 4 p.m., at The Wine Spot, 2271 Lee Road in Cleveland Heights. This is the second year that Adam and Susan Fleisher, owners of The Wine Spot and residents of Cleveland Heights, have hosted the event.
The band Smiley Baldazar will provide live music for the event, which will also feature a silent auction and chances to win valuable raffle prizes.
Proceeds will benefit such organizations as the Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital, Cardiac Research Division; and the American Heart Association. The money is also used for other foundation events, such as Fitness Fits Everyone, in which more than 3,000 people and 75 organizations come together to learn about eating healthy, staying active and having fun.
