host its 5th Annual Dealing With Hearts Gala. The fun-filled evening will include casino
play for prizes, silent auction, buffet dinner and open bar. The cost is $110
per person, which will support the goals of Forever 9.
The Robbie Levine Foundation was founded to honor
the memory of Robbie Levine, a happy, healthy nine-year-old boy whose life
revolved around his family, his friends and baseball. Robbie died suddenly on
September 27, 2005 when his heart stopped while he was running the
bases during a Little League team practice.
In the wake of this unimaginable tragedy in
their lives, Robbie’s parents, Jill and Craig Levine, created the Robbie Levine
Foundation to ensure that no other parent, on the ball field or anywhere else,
should have to undergo the horror they have faced.
The Foundation focuses its work on fostering
education and awareness of the importance of Automated External Defibrillators
(AEDs) and of Sudden Cardiac Arrest, with a special focus on children. The
Foundation’s ultimate goal is to make the AED a mandatory piece of equipment wherever
children play sports.

Gala. They are:

All sponsors will have their names posted at the appropriate

Levine Foundation web site and will receive a thank-you plaque.
