Fundraisers & Events


The LPCF Mixed Doubles Tennis Classic and Gala is an annual fundraiser which takes place every spring at the Country Club of Louisiana in Baton Rouge. The LPCF tournament is highly sought after and well-attended by the local professional tennis community. Corporate sponsorships and proceeds from the tournament, gala and auction directly support grants for families. This event raises over $100,000 for LPCF each year.

Helping Heal Little Hearts is an annual fundraiser held every August, presented by Newsradio 1150WJBO with celebrity host Michael Berry. This party for a cause is held at the Varsity Theatre and features a VIP meet and greet, an exciting live auction, catered food by Stroubes and a concert by a popular band. The combined proceeds from sponsors, auction items, and ticket sales bring in over $85,000 for LPCF.

The LPCF Family Picnic provides a wonderful opportunity to unite local children and families who have similar medical conditions and experiences. This free, annual event for children with heart disease and/or defects is held every fall at BREC’s Webb Park in Baton Rouge. All children and their siblings enjoy food, balloon art, crafts, face painting, inflatables and more. The event concludes with a special red balloon release honoring all children battling heart conditions.
