The CHN's Annual Wine Gala Dinner 2023

With our 19th year, the Wine Gala has raised almost $1 million to support children living with

congenital heart disease and their families. Your support helps provide more than 600 families through creating more memories and family support.

When families are given the diagnosis, it is a devastating and difficult time. We provide support by

giving those those newly diagnosed a chance to connect with other families that have been in the same position. We aspire to create memories for families and new found friends in the heart

community to last for their entire lives.

With the illustrious Dr. Sanatani as our host and the always enteraining Fred Lee as our auctioneer, join us for an evening of great eats and entertainment while making a difference for children living with CHD and the families who love them.

Our gala is officially sold out! Thank you for your generosity.

Organized by
Children's Heart Network of BC
Working together throughout BC…“to enhance through education and support, the lives of children, youth and families who are living with congenital or acquired heart disease.” Established in 1983, the Children’s Heart Network (CHN) is a provincial charitable. Approximately 1 in every 100 children born has some form of CHD. Approximately 500 children are diagnosed each year in BC with heart disease. Half of these children will require medical intervention. With innovative medical and surgical techniques, most children with heart disease have every opportunity to lead full and productive lives. The CHN hosts events and camps that allow children and their parents to connect and support each other as they travel long their heart journey. In addition, we provide education sessions, support groups and CPR training for parents and care-givers.
