Cara’s Sweethearts – 2nd Annual Beats From the Heart

2nd annual cara's sweethearts

The good news is Cara McGettigan is doing well after her June 2014 cardiac follow up at Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia. Cara’s battle led to the creation of Cara’s Sweethearts by the McGettigan family of Fox Chase.  The mission of Cara’s Sweethearts is simple, to give back and help others as Cara was helped. Their mission statement: Inspired by the exceptional care and unforgettable families we met when Cara was being treated at CHOP, we founded an organization to raise funds and resources to give back.

Cara’s Sweethearts is hosting their 2nd annual Beats from the Heart fundraiser on Saturday, October 18, 2014 – 6 p.m to 10 p.m  at McFadden’s at Citizens Bank Park. For $35.00, (40 at the door), you can help those in need while enjoying fine music, beer, wine, food, a 50/50 and door prizes plus free parking!
