Cocktails for A Cause! A Resounding Success

Exactly one week has passed since Surgeons of Hope proudly proudly hosted Cocktails for a Cause, a fundraising event dedicated to celebrating the people who make our mission possible and witnessing the positive impact we bring to the lives of the children we support. Our night was filled with much enjoyment at the Ivy Terrace, where guests  basked in the perfect weather while relishing specialty cocktails and indulging in delectable hors d’oeuvres. The evening’s highlights included the exhilarating live auctions, a silent auction featuring amazing experiences and wonderful art by the Student Arts League, and, most importantly, a compelling look back at our work over the past year through a touching video presentation.

We were privileged to host Ambassador Carlos Alberto Ortíz, the UN representative from Paraguay, at our event. Thanks to the remarkable achievements of our live and silent auctions, along with the live ask segment, we successfully met our goal to receive a generous matching donation from our former board member and steadfast supporter, Michael Katz. The funds raised and the valuable connections established have brought us a significant step closer to ensuring that children with Congenital Heart Defects (CHD) in Latin America receive the vital care they need.

Our heartfelt gratitude extends to our dedicated board members, the event committee, our enthusiastic volunteers, sponsors, and most importantly, to the children and families we serve. They have entrusted us with the care of their children, and we remain committed to our mission.
