June 5, 2021

We have decided to push the date for Light Your Heart one final time to Saturday, June 5.

We are hoping this date change will give us the opportunity to host more guests in person. Those who aren't comfortable attending in person still have the option to participate virtually.

Thank you for your continued support and flexibility.

An evening of fun and magic awaits,

A night of delight, delish drinks and plates,

A joyous event that will open life’s gates

To numerous children, their dreams, and their fates.

Your Impact


Many children and families benefit from multiple therapies, multiple times a week. However, not all insurance companies consistently cover the therapy costs. Through the generosity of community partners and event donors like you, Heartspring is able to serve more than 1000 children each year. Money raised at our events provides financial aid for families in need, resources, like equipment and supplies, for our therapists, and in response to the world pandemic, equipment to prevent COVID-19 infections on our campus.



Join us for a whimsical evening of fun and magic as we support children and families at Heartspring.
