U-M Congenital Heart Center hosts 15th annual Save A Heart Celebration


ANN ARBOR, MI – The University of Michigan Congenital Heart Center will host a strolling food and wine tasting from 6:30 to 9 p.m. on Nov. 9 at the Michigan League, 911 N. University in Ann Arbor.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the young patients at the Congenital Heart Center, many of whom face life-threatening heart defects. Funds also will go toward education and research opportunities for the health care providers at the center, as well as the construction fund for the Congenital Heart Center in the new C. S. Mott Children’s Hospital and Women’s Hospital, set to open in 2011.

At the event, there will be tasting samples from some best-known local restaurants, as well as a large selection of wine from around the world.

The celebration will feature a silent auction, including autographed sports memorabilia and a one-week stay at a Disney World condominium. The evening also will feature performances by a variety of musical groups. And Austin and Warburton Fine Jewelers will again present the “diamond dip,” an opportunity to find one of 10 diamonds scattered in a box full of cubic zirconia. “Dips” are $25 each, or $100 for five “dips.” Drawings will be conducted during the event.

Tickets for the Save A Heart Celebration of Food and Wine are $60 per person and available at C. S. Mott Children’s Hospital. For more information, visit the Save A Heart Web site at, or call Marilyn Hawkins at (734) 936-9134.
