The American Foundation for Cardiomyopathy (AmericanFFC) announced that it will donate 25 percent of the proceeds of two upcoming CPR training classes to help support Baby Emma Mae.

Eleven-month-old Emma Mae Salvati, who suffers from restrictive cardiomyopathy, is in need of a heart transplant.

Emma's aunt, Ahwatukee resident Amanda Potucek, has coordinated a silent auction fundraising event that will take place at CK's restaurant in Ahwatukee on Saturday.

In addition to providing items for the silent auction, AmericanFFC has agreed to donate 25 percent of the proceeds from two upcoming Ahwatukee CPR training classes to support Baby Emma Mae.

The Grace Inn in Ahwatukee, 10831 S. 51st St., has donated the space for these training classes from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Dec. 10 and Jan. 14. The cost for each class is $65, and includes all required materials.

To register, go to or call 1-800-433-0774, ext. 107.
