NOW: Registration deadline for ’Flannels & Friends’ fundraiser, to help children with heart disease, is Nov. 28


MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- We know about heart disease in adults. But it's also estimated one in 100 children deals with this health issue, according to the March of Dimes.

On Dec. 8, there's a fundraiser for Camp Odayin called "Flannels & Friends." This camp provides fun, safe, and supportive experiences and community-building opportunities for young people impacted by this debilitating condition, and of course their families too. The event will feature music, food, drink, a silent auction, and even an escape room. Organizers say this fun setting is a way to create a lighter atmosphere centered around a pretty heavy topic.

"Flannels & Friends" takes place Dec. 8 between 5 and 8 p.m. at Best Place at The Historic Pabst Brewery.

Chief Meteorologist Drew Burgoyne is the proud emcee for another year. Tickets cost $50. They're still looking for event sponsors. You have until Monday, Nov. 28 to sign up for a sponsorship and purchase tickets.
