12th Annual We Maggie Weekend
Traditionally by now, we have opened registration, and the excitement for the annual Butterfly Bash & Golf Tournament has begun. The global Coronavirus pandemic has already resulted in the cancellation of two of Children’s Heart Foundation’s major annual fundraisers, resulting in a significant revenue loss for the foundation. Therefore, there is more of a fundraising need this year than ever before. While we are currently in a holding pattern, we are anxious to get back to work and hope that we can rely upon you to help us when the timing is appropriate. Please stay tuned for additional updates in the coming weeks. Thank you for your continued support!
ANNOUNCEMENT: This heartwarming event has been extended to 2-days for all to enjoy!
Butterfly Bash (TBD): Join us for a fun evening as we kick off the 12th Annual We Heart Maggie Weekend! Enjoy dinner, complimentary signature cocktails, a live auction, the spectacular Maverick Helicopter ball drop, fun, fun, and more fun. Online auction bidding will begin, too! We are thrilled to be able to include this fabulous night again this year! Must be 21+ to attend.
Golf Tournament (TBD): Players will enjoy an amazing day of golf and an awards reception, and children are invited to spend the afternoon at Maggie’s Butterfly Village, filled with lots of fun activities! Online auction bidding will continue throughout the day, as well as raffle ticket sales.

ABOUT USEnergetic, social, happy, coy, cuddly – all these describe our precious Maggie. She was always on the go with a need to be in the middle of every gathering. Her smile lit up the room and her little head tilt melted the hearts of anyone around her. Maggie passed away in July 2008 due to complications during a procedure to correct a congenital heart defect. She blessed us with the most amazing 14 months of life, and instilled in us a passion to help other families with whom we share a common bond. We determined that we could keep the wonderful memories we have of Maggie alive while also giving back to the organization which helped us in our time of need. Thus, our commitment to Children’s Heart Foundation began.
Congenital Heart Defects (CHDs) are the most common birth defect in America, affecting approximately 40,000 babies born each year. Nearly twice as many children die from a CHD than from all childhood cancers combined, yet funding for CHDs is 5 times less. CHF has worked hard over the past 16 yrs to support children with CHDs.
You can help us make a difference by supporting the We Maggie Golf Tournament. Your support will help fund research and education, assist families with transportation, food or lodging for surgery appointments, or send a child to camp. Your support also helps fund Maggie’s Garden, a whimsical room full of toys, butterflies, flowers and a tall oak tree. A child about to undergo a heart procedure is invited to visit to choose a toy; our hope is that this will provide a positive experience during a particularly difficult time.
Since our inaugural tournament in 2009, more than $1,000,000.00 has been raised and hundreds of Heart Kids have been impacted. Please help us keep these numbers growing!
