Hearts in San Francisco

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:

  1. Judge Mary Morgan for her efforts to reframe the way our justice system supports mental health
  2. Dewey Rosetti for changing the conversation about learning disabilities
  3. Dr. Shannon Thyne for improving the health and quality of life for children in need
  4. 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.
