Your Impact


Many children with special needs require more than one type of therapy multiple times per week. However, not all insurance companies consistently cover the therapy costs. To ensure children receive the services they need, the proceeds from Light Your Heart award free and reduced fee therapies and services to many ever-deserving families. Through the generosity of community partners and event donors like you, Heartspring awarded more than $1 million in financial assistance to almost 500 families last year.

Your ticket is more than just an evening of drinks, food, and music. It is children taking their first steps and saying "I love you" for the first time.




Join us for an evening of enchantment and elegance in the magical Emerald City to support children with special needs at Heartspring.
