The Foundation has a rich history of educational and social fund-raising events. Each has been an opportunity for our supporters and contributors to learn, to enjoy and to be entertained.

We have been inspired by Astronaut Buzz Aldrin; entertained by Debbie Reynolds, Michael York and Monica Mancini; enlightened by Dr. David Agus; inspired by Mayor Richard Riordan; and educated by the research physicians of the Foundation, including Dr. Harold Karpman and Dr. Ron Karlsberg.

Our guests have sipped fine wine, bid on valuable art and silent auction prizes, and enjoyed delicious cuisine at the Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills. All in support of the cause: To dedicate game-changing research to the pursuit of a cure for cardiovascular disease.

This photo gallery will take you on a tour of our October, 2014 Gala, which honored former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan and our own Dr. Ron Karlsberg.
