The Rev. Kerwin Manning and his wife, Madelyn, have established A Piece of My Heart Foundation in honor of their daughter Morgan Manning, who died last year at age 14 of a rare heart condition, Catecholaminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia.
The nonprofit organization is having its inaugural fundraising gala on Saturday evening, April 28, at Pasadena Christian School. The event, which begins at 6 p.m., will feature dinner and musical entertainment.
“Morgan went to heaven on April 8, 2017,” Kerwin Manning said. “We were totally devastated by her sudden death. We knew immediately that we wanted to commit the rest of our lives bringing awareness to CPVT, supporting other young people living with CPVT, and preventing other families from experiencing what we have experienced.”
Morgan Manning had been a student at Pasadena Christian from preschool through 8th grade.
“The Mannings represent everything that is good and right about our community,” said Pasadena Christian Head of School Steven Gray. “Their deep faith and rich service to the community has always been a powerful example to all of us. Even with the tragic loss of Morgan, a bright star of our junior high 8th-grade class, they sought to bring healing to other children and families through their foundation. It is an honor for us to be able to help in some small way to support them.”
Said Kerwin Manning: “Dr. Gray and his entire board helped pave the way for this event. Their support has been invaluable and we are honored to partner with them.”
Tickets are $100. To purchase tickets, visit apieceofmyheart.life or call (626) 491-1165 or email info@apieceofmyheart.life.
