The Children’s Heart Foundation, Oregon Chapter, is a group made up of all volunteers who are dedicated to raising awareness of Congenital Heart Defects, and raising money for the national effort to fund the most promising research to help improve the lives of children and families affected.


  Vinolympics 2015 is nearly here to help kick off CHD awareness month.   A super fun evening supporting a great cause and a celebration of 10 years of supporting the most promising CHD research.   This is a fun, casual, and totally un-snooty ‘wine-tasting meets carnival’ event. Medal winners will receive lots of – you guessed it- bottles of wine!  This year the event will be held at OMSI and cocktail attire and dancing will be added to our wine–themed games to create an event you don’t want to miss.  Please join us and help celebrate 10 great years. Purchase tickets now!




Can’t make it to Vinolympics?  It’s not too late to celebrate 10 years of raising money to support CHD Research in your own way.   The past decade has been such an inspiration and when we started planning what we could do to celebrate, we thought about you, our community, and drew our inspiration from all the support over the years.  So here’s our plan.  Hold your event, invite your friends, make it a fundraiser if you want.  Tell us how you are going to celebrate our 10th!  We have a map online where you can see everything that’s going on – and as soon as you are ready, we will add your event too.  Click here to learn more.

Please join us. We know this is important work, and we can have fun while we achieve it together.  We can make a difference through the efforts of dedicated volunteers and sponsors like our signature 10th year sponsor:


Additionally, we host a few other fun events throughout the year including:  Lionheart at the Portland Children’s Museum (late spring),  CHF Wine Rides, presented by Bike Gallery (Summer) and a Heart Walk (Sept).
