HeartGift Ambassadors Join Forces
A first-time reception for the newly created HeartGift Ambassadors brought a crowd of young professionals to Hotel St. Cecilia in South Austin. Event Chairs Nicole and Bill Kessler with Ali and Trey Watson were joined by Founder Chairs Stacy and Jerry Dollar in welcoming guests to the evening and the mission of HeartGift.
HeartGift began in 2000 and has provided well over 100 life-saving heart surgeries to children from around the world. These operations are simply not available to the children in their native countries—so they travel to Austin, stay with a host family and receive the operation that allows them to grow and prosper. It is very much a “village” effort between hospitals, surgeons, anesthesiologists, host families and many
The Ambassadors will help spread the word of HeartGift as it expands beyond Austin and saves the lives of even more children.
