Elkhart General Hospital kicks off cardiac unit fundraiser


Downtown Elkhart is going to have some street decorations.

21 five foot hearts have been painted by local artists and will be placed all over the city. They are part of Elkhart General Hospital's "Have a Heart Fundraiser."

Some of the artists were new to this type of work, but they say they are happy to contribute to the cause.

"I haven't done anything like this, but I kinda knew what to expect. I painted it and then the black is actually drawn on with paint markers so that was a little easier than trying to paint all the little details on, but it was a lot of fun," says local artist, Carrie Beachey.

The hearts will be auctioned off on Valentines Day. The hospital hopes to raise $250,000 to go towards the cardiac unit.
