One Heartland raises funds – and friends – through a variety of special events throughout the year.

The 2015 Parties With Heart fundraiser will take place around the country during the month of March.

Parties with Heart is a way for you to throw a fundraising party for One Heartland's camps and programs on any date in the month of March. To host your party, just contact us. One Heartland will provide plenty of support: sending out invites to your party guests and providing educational materials, donation envelopes and reminder emails. We will also help you find the right vendors and entertainment options.

And because it is YOUR party, have fun with it! Think of a theme and location that suit you and your friends best. Some ideas include: a board game tournament, a St. Patrick's Day party or a cocktail party. Or you could turn a birthday or anniversary party into a fundraising event. Or don't throw a party at all, instead have a bake sale, trivia night or just invite your friends and family to donate to One Heartland on a certain day of the month. It's completely up to you! 

Parties with Heart is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year. If you want to throw a party or need ideas on themes, email
