La Bamba! A Straight from the Heart Bash!

La Bamba blasted the way to a great night of fundraising at LaCentre in Westlake last month as Community West Foundation and Lakewood Hospital teamed for the 7th annual Straight from the Heart Red Tie Gala to benefit Cleveland Clinic Regional Hospitals. La Bamba – well known for his appearances as a regular on The Late Show with Conan O’Brien – helped raise funds for cardiac services as 500 guests enjoyed a great dinner and raffle prizes culminated by a $100,000 grand prize. Silent auctions included everything from an adorable puppy to sports ticket packages, jewelry and more. The 40 major raffle prize tickets brought lots of excitement with winners taking home everything from generous cash prizes to a 24 month lease on a new Camaro to a sleek Harley-Davidson.
Each 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.
