The Larry King Cardiac Foundation Brings its Annual Gala to Homes Across the Nation
Date:3/5/2009

2009 will be business unusual for the Foundation

ROCKVILLE, Md., March 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Americans and nonprofit organizations are currently facing increasingly tough economic times. In light of these circumstances, The Larry King Cardiac Foundation (LKCF), a nonprofit organization dedicated to funding life-saving cardiac care for individuals with no health insurance, has announced that it is changing the way it does business in 2009.

In lieu of its annual black tie gala held in Washington, D.C., the Foundation made the decision to forego this popular event and bring the party to homes across the nation in what it calls party philanthropy. Party philanthropy is a fresh approach to fundraising that allows people who are planning to celebrate meaningful events like birthdays or anniversaries to make it more purposeful.

By simply visiting the new Web site www.larrykingandfriends.org, individuals and groups can choose to make their personal occasion even more meaningful by helping to save the life of someone in need. Party organizers can sign up to receive a "Save a Heart Party Kit," which contains all the essentials for throwing a benefit in the comfort of their own home. Lucky party planners might even receive a call from LKCF's founder and Emmy(R)-winning talk show host Larry King during their event.

"The idea for this initiative came to me late last year from a woman named Meg in Tampa, Fla.," said Larry King, Jr., president of LKCF. "She was celebrating her 40th birthday in a big way and asked her friends to make a donation to our foundation instead of feting her with gifts. Through the money they raised, her friends were able to help save the life of a member of the Tampa community. To Meg, that was the best birthday gift she had ever received."

Party kits contain 25 wristbands that display the Founda
