Heroes and Hearts — Community leaders from nearly every part of San Francisco gathered at Union Square on February 10, 2011, for the 6th annual San Francisco General Hospital Foundation Heroes & Hearts Awards Luncheon. SFGHF Board President Judy Guggenhime presented four Heroes & Hearts Awards, designed to recognize individuals who inspire others through exceptional community service:
- Judge Mary Morgan for her efforts to reframe the way our justice system supports mental health
- Dewey Rosetti for changing the conversation about learning disabilities
- Dr. Shannon Thyne for improving the health and quality of life for children in need
- John Weidinger for instilling the value of education in our youth
Scenes from the Heroes & Hearts event:
Hearts in San Francisco, a city-wide art installation and a fundraising event that began in 2004, added 14 new heart artworks to the collection this year, along with six smaller table-top hearts. All were auctioned off at the event with proceeds donated to support SFGHF’s programs that enhance patient care and comfort. The Heroes & Hearts Luncheon has raised over $6 million for SFGHF.
