Heart of a Child

Picture 2 of 14

Dozens of talented young musicians from around the county performed in Solana Beach Nov. 10 to brighten the lives of children who have complex congenital heart disease. Money raised at the third annual Heart of a Child concert will benefit the Ariana Fund, a nonprofit organization formed in 2008 in memory of Ariana Miller, a 13-year-old Encinitas girl who died from the disease that year while waiting for a heart transplant.

In its young history, the Ariana Fund has awarded nearly $45,000 in grants, including recent awards of $10,000 to expand Resounding Joy’s “Healing Notes” music therapy program at Rady Children’s Hospital for patients with congenital heart disease, and $7,500 to Camp del Corazon, a summer camp on Catalina Island for children with heart disease.

The event was co-hosted this year by Loren Nancarrow and Hal Grant.  Nancarrow is news anchor on FOX 5 San Diego.  For more information, visit www.thearianafund.org or send emails to thearianafund@gmail.com. Photos/McKenzie Images
