Heart of San Diego gala raises funds for cardiovascular center

Wendy Walker, Emmy-winning producer of “Larry King Live,” and Randall Woods, founder of Eden Woods Investments, were honored for their support of the Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center at the 15th annual Heart of San Diego Gala, Feb. 25 at the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort in Carlsbad.

CNN medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta served as emcee for the evening, which was themed, “An Affair to Remember.” Gala guests helped raise funds for a new da Vinci Surgical System for the performance of robotic, minimally invasive cardiovascular procedures.

The Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center opened its new facility last year on the La Jolla campus of UCSD as a nucleus for clinical care and cardiovascular research in the region.
