Izzy’s Ice Cream Challenge & Social

April 20 @ 8:00 am - June 2 @ 3:30 pm

Izzy is a beautiful and vivacious 10-year-old who was born with complex congenital heart defects (“CHD”). Unfortunately, Izzy has reached the edge of science and is in heart failure with no fixes, no surgery, no help. We don’t think it is right that a child should suffer, so we want to raise funds for research. Izzy’s favorite treat is ice cream, so we eat ice cream for Izzy and fund CHD research at the same time! Join us for Izzy’s Ice Cream Challenge.

Take the pledge today to think of Izzy and all of the kids (and adults) who were born with CHD each time you eat ice cream this spring. Then donate a quarter, a dollar, ten dollars for each frozen treat. Keep a jar in your kitchen or keep a tally (ice cream stickers are a fun way to track). Izzy’s Ice Cream Challenge officially runs this year from Izzy’s birthday on Saturday, March 17th through Saturday, June 2, 2018.

The event culminates at Izzy’s Ice Cream Social & Family Fun Day on Saturday, June 2, 2018, at Grant Park in Utica. You can bring your money to the social or mail it The Children’s Heart Foundation-Michigan Chapter, PO Box 1808, Troy, MI 48099 by that day, or donate at this link http://weblink.donorperfect.com/Izzysicecreamsocial2018. For every $30 raised, you will receive an “I ate ice cream for Izzy! Funding CHD research 2018” cloth bracelet.

Tickets for Izzy’s Ice Cream Social & Family Fun Day are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Children under 3 enter for free. Buy tickets online at the same link for donating to the Challenge: http://weblink.donorperfect.com/Izzysicecreamsocial2018.
