ANNA Merrifield is a miraculous little girl.
At just eight months old, she has already fought hard to survive.
Born with two holes in her heart on July 8 last year, Anna was later taken to the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne where she underwent lifesaving, open-heart surgery.
Now a healthy, smiling baby, Anna’s parents, Merryn and Lee Merrifield, want to say thanks to the Royal Children’s Hospital.
“We were there for two weeks and for that time they looked after us and saved our baby’s life,” Ms Merrifield said.
“The least we can do is organise some way to raise some money for the hospital.”
To do so, the husband and wife team will hold a fundraising dinner on March 27 at The American Hotel in Creswick.
Promised to be a great night of entertainment, coupled with raising money for a worthy cause, Ms Merrifield encouraged people to join in.
“This hospital saves the lives of countless families everyday,” she said. “Now is our chance to say thanks.”
The night, which includes a three-course dinner, auctions and trivia, will donate money from ticket sales and all other proceeds to the hospital.

Tickets can also be collected at The American Hotel.
