The Fourth Annual Fairfield 50 September 3, 2017.
In 2016, through funds raised by the Fairfield Fifty and other events, Ellie's Heart Foundation was able to participate with the Penn State Medical Center's Children’s Heart Group in the creation of Camp LionHeart, a week long summer camp program for kids ages 12-18 with repaired congenital heart disease or cardiomyopathies. Through funding by Ellie's Heart Foundation and grants from sources such as the Children's Miracle Network, Camp LionHeart is free of charge to its campers.
