Description
MOBILE – The first-ever All In For Heart event kicks off on September 21, 2017, to benefit the Pediatric Congenital Heart Center at Children’s of Alabama. Friends in Mobile and Baldwin counties are invited to enjoy a night of faux casino games at The Pillars, located at 1757 Government St.

Admission is $60 per ticket and $100 per couple. Starting at 6:30 p.m., attendees can enjoy fantastic food, complimentary beer and wine, live music and great prizes, and will receive $1,000 in “fun money” to play blackjack, craps and roulette. Guests are asked to dress in cocktail attire.

Proceeds from the All In For Heart event will help heal the hearts of many children like local Gulf Coast patient, Brantley Erwin of Mobile. Brantley was diagnosed with complex congenital heart defects (CHD) including a double outlet right ventricle, transposition of the great vessels, a large VSD, and pulmonary stenosis. He has undergone 13 operations and countless procedures for his heart and complications from his complex CHD. Now, Brantley is an active 10-year-old, but will battle CHD and continue taking a daily dose of medicines for the rest of his life.
