Our Annual Benefit goes Virtual this year to Fight Epilepsy and SUDEP

WHEN:  Saturday October 3, 2020

WHERE: This year will feature a virtual event with a live streaming program.

Supporters can watch from their home, or with their friends. If you are interested to host a satellite watch party at your home, please email We hope to have Hearts & Hugs watch parties across the U.S!

A small, in-person VIP party will take place at Theater On The Lake in Chicago, located at 2401 N. Lakeshore Drive; at Fullerton Ave, on the lakefront just east of Lakeshore Drive. VIP ticket information is coming soon.

DETAILS: Gratitude fills our hearts as we celebrate our 10th anniversary year - 2010-2020 - of serving the epilepsy community in Danny's memory. Due to the generosity of our supporters, we have assisted families facing epilepsy spanning all 50 states and 13 countries. Yet, there remains a huge unmet need, and we look to increase our impact in the years ahead. Our virtual Hearts & Hugs format enables us connect with supporters around the U.S. as we fortify our mission to prevent deaths caused by seizures.

Due to the fallout of COVID-19 and the impact on nonprofits, the millions of families who face life with seizures need you more than ever. The dollars we raise will change lives for the better.

MaragosFORMAT: We are proud to welcome Alex Maragos of NBC5 as our emcee!

Our virtual Hearts & Hugs will include a silent auction, prize raffle, live auctions, and "Fund a Cause" paddle raise segment. We are excited to have Keith Jones of Sayles & Jones Auctioneers as a partner to our event.

More details coming soon.

REGISTRATION: There will be no cost to watch our live streaming program. More details coming soon.
