Ella's Trivia Night
Supporting Pediatric Heart Research through St. Louis Children's Hospital

About Us

Our Story

We are Kyle & Betty Mertens, and on May 15th of 2017 our one-year-old daughter, Ella, passed away due to complications caused by an undiagnosed genetic heart condition. We want to do everything in our power to keep this from happening to other families. This is why we established The Ella Marie Endowment Fund at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. All the proceeds from this event will go directly to Ella’s Fund which will support pediatric cardiology research.
