Little Hearts Luncheon & Fashion Show

October 14, 2020

It was with great optimism that we postponed Little Hearts Luncheon & Fashion Show from April to October 2020. Like you, we had hoped to move forward with an in-person celebration of our Heart Institute, caregivers and patients.

In response to public health guidance and out of an abundance of caution for our models, families and guests, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Little Hearts Luncheon and Fashion Show scheduled for Wednesday, October 14th. While this is not the update we had hoped to share for our 35th Anniversary, our priority and responsibility is focused squarely on everyone’s health and safety. I know and appreciate how much this event means to each and every one of you, and I wish that we were able to move forward in the way we were hoping to.

That said, we still need to celebrate our amazing heart patients and the legacy impact made by Little Hearts under our fearless Chairwoman, Lyn Schaffer! To that end, we will be sharing a very special virtual program, our wonderful silent auction and other opportunities to show support for the Heart Institute at Children’s Colorado via email on October 14th. We would LOVE to feature you in the program which will include a video compilation of messages describing “What Little Hearts Has Meant To You.” If you’re interested in submitting a video message for the program, please contact Erin Beimford at for details!

While we wish we could be physically together to celebrate, we know our community will be together in spirit to honor the patients and families who truly are this event’s heartbeat!
