Community West Foundation Straight from the Heart: A Red Tie Gala!

The 7th annual Straight from the Heart Red Tie Gala to benefit Cleveland Clinic Regional Hospitals was as hot as a blazing Valentine Saturday evening at LaCentre in Westlake. Presented each year by Community West Foundation and Lakewood Hospital Foundation, this premier fundraiser offered a spectacular mix of great food and top entertainment for 500 guests who celebrated the gift of philanthropy in style! Dr. David Bronson, President Cleveland Clinic Regional Hospitals, welcomed guests to an off-the-charts night of music, prizes and, most of all, priceless support for excellence in community healthcare.

Musical hit of the night was La Bamba and the Hubcaps straight out of New York. La Bamba is known from his appearances on The Late Show with Conan O’Brien Show nightly! Proceeds from the event support Regional Heart Centers that provide the most comprehensive resources available for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart disease. “In partnership with each other and with the Cleveland Clinic, our hospitals continue to share best practices and resources to ensure excellence in our programs and our cardiac outcomes,” said Dr. Bronson. “Taking excellent care of our patients is our number one priority!”
Every year, Straight from the Heart provides significant financial support to Fairview, Lakewood, Lutheran and Medina Hospitals to better respond to the cardiovascular needs of the community. With a $100,000 grand prize followed by a cavalcade of total of 39 other terrific prizes, guests had a whopping good time raffle tickets were pulled for everything from a 24 month lease on a brand new Camaro, to a sleek Harley-Davidson, to several luxury vacations and even fine jewelry!
