Create a Heart
San Francisco General Hospital Foundation’s Hearts in San Francisco project debuted in 2004. Under the leadership of Nancy Bechtle and Ellen Magnin Newman, 131 beautiful and inspired Heart Sculptures were created by local artists. The project generated a new level of exposure for the Foundation’s mission, as well as the Zuckerberg San Francisco General’s vital role in our community
On an annual basis, a limited series of Heart Sculptures are created by San Francisco Bay Area artists. The Heart Sculptures play a lead role in the Foundation’s Annual Fundraiser Events held in February of each year. Heart Sculptures are both auctioned to raise critical funds for the Foundation and shared as a special token of appreciation with our Premier Event Sponsors.
