Hearts of Gold - Playing for Health and Happiness - is an opportunity to raise funds and awareness for the Helen DeVos Children's Hospital Foundation. Everyone is invited to wear gold to the varsity football game on Friday, September 10th.

This is a community-wide event. Lakeside Elementary School students have raised money over the summer and will donate that money at the school potluck picnic during the first week of school. Wealthy Elementary School students have raised money as well and will donate it at the school picnic on Friday, September 10 at 11:30. The high school cross country team will run the game ball from Holland High School to East Grand Rapids High School in time for 7:00 p.m. game. In addition, we are working with gaslight area businesses to be "gold" for the week before school starts to raise awareness of the Hearts of Gold game.
