This weekend the Jayden DeLuca Foundation will hold its annual masquerade ball.  Here's what the foundation does and how you can make a difference by having some fun this Saturday night.  According to the Centers for Disease Control, over 40,000 children are born with congenital heart disease.  That is the number one birth defect in our country.  That's nearly one in one hundred children that are born with these challenges and need intensive medical attention to survive.

Medical treatment for newborns and children is expensive.  The cost of is over 1.9 billion dollars yearly.  Parents have to rely on their insurance and limited help from the government.

The Jayden DeLuca Foundation began in 2008.  The goal of the foundation is to help families who's children have congenital heart disease.  Your donations and attending the Masquerade Ball will go to funding research, housing, and other items that will help who are fighting for their children.
