Heart to Heart Pregnancy Resource Center: Answering the needs of beating hearts

Around 175 people mingled Saturday evening at Jitters, sampling wines, noshing hors d'oeuvres and bidding generously to benefit Heart to Heart Pregnancy Resource Center. The third annual Fruit of the Vine charitable event raised about $16,000 based on preliminary numbers, said Heart to Heart Executive Director Alycia Thomas. The proceeds bring the nonprofit pregnancy center within reach of a longtime goal to purchase a sonogram machine and offer ultrasounds to mothers in need.
