Supporters All Heart for the 2011 SCVC Gala

You are on Page 1 .... Page 2

"The quality of the event was fittingly matched to the quality of the clinical enterprise it showcased. There was so much excitement generated by those who were able to see the building for the first time and to understand the importance of what has been realized by this joint community and university collaboration. It was truly a very special and a very important event for the University and for the future of health care in San Diego." - Sheri Jamieson

Elegant black tie supporters came out 700 plus strong last night to support and celebrate the opening of UCSD’s Sulpizio Family Cardiovascular Center aka SCVC.

Among the attendees were Honorary Chairs Zandra Rhodes, founder of the Fashion and Textile Museum in London and Salah Hassanein, chairman of the Variety Children’s Lifeline. Also there were event chairs Carol and Tom Dillon, Dean for the School of Medicine David Brenner, and Sheri Jamieson with her husband Dr. Stuart Jamison of the SCVC (he’s also a Founding Director). Stuart is is also a world renown cardio-thoracic surgeon who is foremost for PTE, short for a very complicated surgery whose purpose is to remove blood clots from the lung after draining the body of blood, dropping the body temperature to 60 degrees, and stopping the heart every 20 minutes to get to the clot.

Seriously amazing.

Event Chairs Carol and Tom Dillon

More there admiring the new center and celebrating it included Olivia and Peter Farrell of ResMed, Noni and Drew Senyei, UCSD Vice Chancellor Health Sciences and SCVC Founding Director Dr. Anthony DeMaria, and actors Marion Ross and Paul Michael.

Fashionable notables included Sheri Jamieson in classic couture by Carolina Herrera, Doreen Schonbrun in vintage Chanel with entrancing decolletage, Erika Torri in a Zandra Rhodes design, County Supervisor Pam Slater-Price also wearing a Zandra Rhodes dress, and Colette Royston n Reem Acra and Louboutin stilettos. Husband Ivor Royston helped adjust the shoes curbside

More there included Dixie Unruh in Zandra, Valerie Cooper in a slightly plunging and lacy Jenny Packham black gown, and Zandra Rhodes in Zandra of course. Zandra's was accessorized with her traditional trademark bright, bright pink hair and large clunky jewelry of her design.

This reporter could not resist wearing her first Zandra, vintage, with ostrich feathered hat by Diana Cavagnaro.

The fashion watch was just part of the fun. The evening continued with dinner by Giuseppe Fine Catering, they catered the reception too as well as the pre-event VIP party at Sheri and Stuart Jamieson's. Reception cuisine included a tri-colored bite sized beet appetizer and seared ahi tuna on a crispy wonton.  Red pomegranate martinis offered added to the heart theme of the evening. Dinner started with a Maine Lobster and Chesapeake Bay Crab ‘Stack’ with silvers of Hass avocado and mango-coriander salsa, and continued with Prime Beef Tenderloin and finale with a Dark Valrhona Chocolate ‘Bomb.’

Après dinner entertainment included a stellar performance by Tony Award winning Broadway actress and singing star Patti LuPone.

The evening ended with dancing, as the weekend marked the beginning of the region’s first and only dedicated cardiovascular facility “providing outstanding patient care, leading-edge technology and groundbreaking clinical trials—all under one roof.” 

The SCVC was made possible by more than $30 million in philanthropic funds including a $10 million leadership gift from Gaby and Richard Sulpizio.

"I thought the night was spectacular, and befitted the incredible feat,of putting San Diego at the forefront of the nation in advanced cardiovascular care" said Doreen Schonbrun.

Graham Ledger was the emcee, Kathy Wright orchestrated the beautiful flower arrangements,

Jim Lennox of Pacific Events in collaboration with Clinton Walters created a beautiful setting with all of the right accents. Clinton offered these gala evening notes:

"The goal for the Cardiovascular Center Gala was to hold the event on the site of the facility so that guests could experience the building and celebrate the many years of dedication to the vision that became reality.

Key was setting the right mood in the room so that those who attended felt very special from the moment they arrived. Guests were greeted by powerful displays of acrylic panels lit in vivid colors and searchlights. The sounds of Otrro Mundo Jazz set the tone as guests arrived, along with Rick Ross playing piano favorites in the Lobby. Guests had their taste buds tempted with wonderful tray-passed hors oeuvres, which was just the beginning of what would be served Giuseppe Fine Catering later in the evening. 

The evening color theme was elegant, featuring hues of chocolate brown and Spartan Blue. Tables were adorned with gleaming hammered glass chargers and each with a special gift donated by Neiman Marcus.

Flowers were sprays of white hydrangeas and phalaenopsis, which towered over the tables, some with trays of candles and vases with submerged phalaenopsis and orchids, and all lit by color-changing lights, allowing the centerpiece to change color with the moods of the evening. Kathy Wright executed the beautiful floral arrangements.

Patti LuPone topped this special evening with a stellar performance called "Gypsy in my Soul"...full of her Broadway hits and favorites and stunning the crowds with her powerful presence.

The Mirage Orchestra charmed all guests during dinner with a selection of classic musical pieces, followed by lively swing hits for dancing to top off the evening. Jim Lennox with Pacific Events created and wonderful oversized lanterns, art deco-style bars, and a fabulous cappuccino lounge for those to enjoy at the conclusion of the evening."
