A Riley benefit brings the heart of Indy to a local event
Riley Hospital for Children will be hosting its first annual “Taste For a Cure” at Wild Air Farms August 8th, in Zionsville. Proceeds will benefit the Riley Heart Center, which was established in 1998. The event is in conjunction with the 36th annual Trader’s Point Hunt Charity Horse Show, that will take place August 6th – 11th at Wild Air Farms in Zionsville.
The Riley Heart Center, located at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis, provides services that include cardiovascular surgery, pediatric cardiology, cardiac critical care and research programs to help children with cardiovascular issues and defects. Riley is ranked as one of the country’s top children’s hospitals and is internationally renowned for basic and translational cardiovascular research. Riley’s cardiac, medical and surgical team is the only group that performs pediatric heart transplantation in the state. The Center currently has fifteen full-time clinical faculty in pediatric cardiology and three full-time surgeons conducting cardiovascular surgery.
The close relationship between the Trader’s Point Hunt Charity Horse Show and Riley Hospital for Children has created the opportunity and an obvious platform for the Riley Heart Center to promote awareness about their research projects and services to the public, and to attract potential donors. Many local businesses see the Taste For a Cure as an opportunity to promote their brands while aiding a noble and worthwhile cause.
