“Triangle Mended Little Hearts is an important Durham-based resource for families struggling with devastating illnesses."
Durham, North Carolina (PRWEB) May 30, 2010
For many, there is nothing as therapeutic as a beautiful spring or summer night at a baseball game. And in Durham, North Carolina, baseball is synonymous with the Durham Bulls.
This realization lead the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin to make a donation of Durham Bulls tickets to Triangle Mended Little Hearts, the local chapter of a nationwide support program for caregivers of children with heart defects and heart disease. Triangle Mended Little Hearts is dedicated to inspiring hope in those who are the littlest heart patients of all. The local chapter meets at Duke Children’s Hospital in Durham, NC.
The Law Offices of James Scott Farrin donated 12 seats to Durham Bulls baseball games on May 22 (against the Pawtucket Red Sox) and May 28 (against the Rochester Red Wings).
The tickets can be used to provide an exciting, full-filled evening for pediatric cardiology patients and their families, or as part of a fundraising endeavor by the organization.
Triangle Mended Little Hearts has a personal meaning to the staff of the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin. At six-weeks, Grace Sanchez was diagnosed with a heart defect that required open heart surgery. Both of Grace’s parents work at the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin. The successful surgery was performed at Duke Children’s Hospital which treats more than 200 children with heart defects annually. By living through the ordeal along with Grace’s parents, the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin developed a special calling to support pediatric cardiology patients and their families. As such, the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin has become one of Triangle Mended Little Hearts’ ongoing sponsors.
In deciding how to help Triangle Mended Little Hearts, Sanchez just looked out of his office window. The firm recently relocated its main office to the historic American Tobacco Campus in downtown Durham, overlooking the Durham Bulls Athletic Park’s left field.
“Triangle Mended Little Hearts is an important Durham-based resource for families struggling with devastating illnesses. Going to a Durham Bulls game is one of the community’s best loved family pastimes,” says Eric Sanchez, Grace Sanchez’ father. “It is our pleasure to pair the two for the benefit of area children.”
