The Averi Budde Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded in 2007 to support pediatric heart programs in and around the St. Louis area, to assist families of children with heart defects, and to fund research into treatments. Averi Rose Budde was born in 2007 and was diagnosed in utero with Tetrology of Fallot with Pulmonary Atresia, ASD and VSD. She has had multiple heart surgeries. Her family, which includes her twin sister Adison and parents Staci and Ryan Budde, formed the foundation and have raised and donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to local hospitals, families and reserach organizations. This year's fundraiser will benefit the Dorothy and Larry Dallas Heart Center at Cardinal Glennon and help raise awareness of Congenital Heart Defects.
