Heart & Stroke Ball

| June 30, 2015 | Parties

Close to 400 guests gathered beneath the magnificent Space Shuttle Endeavor for the American Heart Association's second annual Los Angeles Heart & Stroke Ball. The event, which celebrated the power of innovation in the fight against heart disease and stroke, raised more than $432,000. Special guest performer Wayne Brady got people on the dance floor with lively renditions that included a song improv. Two community leaders were honored for their contributions to creating a culture of health in LA's diverse community - Richard Cordova, president and chief executive officer of Children's Hospital Los Angeles, whose remarkable legacy spans 40 years of service in the health care industry, and Robi Reed, vice president of talent and casting for Black Entertainment Television and founder of Reed for Hope Foundation, which addresses health disparities in communities. Union Bank Managing Director and Regional President Leticia Aguilar chaired the event and Toyota was the presenting sponsor.
