Heart of the Cedar Valley Garden Party
The first ever Heart of the Cedar Valley Garden Party was hosted at the home of cardiothoracic surgeon Dr. Bhavik Patel on July 9. The goal of the event was to raise funds to purchase a new Cell Saver machine which is a vital piece of equipment that assists with open heart surgery, spinal exposure and various other vascular procedures at Allen Hospital.
Thanks to incredible support from donors and attendees, the Garden Party raised enough money for TWO Cell Savers! In total, over $48,000 was raised to benefit the Cedar Valley's heart hospital!
Special thanks to Drs. Bhavik and Cori Patel for hosting and sharing their beautiful garden and to all our event volunteers.
