Come Join Us For an Evening of

Fun, Food, and Fundraising!


The Beat Goes On is being held on September 28, 2019 - and we’d love to have you participate. We're back at the Red Lion on the River at Jantzen Beach this year in the same ballroom.


The evening begins at 5:00pm with a silent auction and welcome reception featuring hors d'oeuvres, beer and wine! Followed by 2-course dinner and live auction, speaker, and dessert dash!


At this website, you can buy tickets for the event, make a donation, and learn more about our mission. Browse our auction catalog frequently, items are still being added. We have a lot in store for the evening and look forward to you joining us!


Our Auctioneer this year is Dale Johannes from Artisan Auctions. We had so much fun with him at last years auction! Art Edwards will be back again this year as well as our Emcee. We couldn't be more thrilled to have this dynamic duo back.

Thank you for supporting David Heller Foundation and helping us reach our goal that every high school in Oregon and around the region have a portable AED that travels with their student athletes. Our mission is to promote healthy teen hearts by educating students, their parents and the public on the importance of cardiac screenings to detect cardiac conditions. Over the years, with the help of our loyal and generous supporters, we have provided 160 portable AEDs to schools and helped over 1,200 athletes ages 13-19 get screened.

Our 2019 target is to provide 40 portable units to schools in need.
