Blooming Heartree

Stella Lee and Vincent Lee

Stella Lee (5th grader) and Vincent Lee (1st grader) are siblings who currently attend Belmont Oaks Academy. Stella is originally from South Korea but her family moved to the Bay Area when she was 2 years old. She loves art in all of its forms, including drawing, coloring, crafting, or making things with recycled materials. She also loves cooking, especially making pancakes for her little brother. Vincent is really into animals and insects. He loves to visit the zoo to meet some of his favorite animals. His hobby is making paper airplanes. He has made more than 30 different types of airplanes and presented to his classmates how each airplane flies differently due to its shape. They are working together to create their heart sculpture.

Hearts in San Francisco Project

The Hearts in San Francisco project debuted in 2004 with 131 heart sculptures, created by local Bay Area artists and auctioned by the Foundation in support of Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center.

The Foundation raised nearly 3 million dollars for ZSFG in that first year. Today, we carry on this tradition by commissioning and auctioning a new set of hearts each year. The funds raised support those delivering on the promise of accessible and equitable health care for all in our city.
