New gala event supports heart health

Join the Spartanburg Regional Foundation through the looking glass for a new fundraising event to support the Spartanburg Regional Heart Center.

The Foundation’s inaugural Heart Gala, themed “Welcome to Wonderland,” is slated for Friday, Feb.14 – Valentine’s Day – at the Spartanburg Marriott.

The event will feature captivating décor based on elements of “Alice in Wonderland,” an upscale live auction, music by party band Steel Toe Stiletto, great food and more.

“We believe the Heart Gala is going to be the perfect event – and Valentine’s is the perfect night to celebrate heart health,” said Kristy Caradori, executive director of Spartanburg Regional Foundation. ”We are so proud to support our nationally acclaimed Heart Center.”

Co-chairs for “Welcome to Wonderland” are Kathy Dunleavy and Sidney Fulmer, MD. These two longtime community leaders are enthusiastic about the plans underway.

“This will be an event unlike any other in Spartanburg – and a great opportunity for attendees to learn more about what a top-quality resource we have right here at home with the Spartanburg Regional Heart Center,” Dunleavy said.

“Welcome to Wonderland” sponsorships and tickets sales will support new technology, specialized training, preventative screenings and community awareness programs. These programs helped support former patient of the Spartanburg Regional Heart Center, Sidney Fulmer, MD.

“I am extremely grateful for the excellent care I received, and I'm proud to be part of this exciting new event to support the work of cardiovascular surgeons and internists, nurses and our whole Heart Center team,” Dr. Fulmer said.

Ticket prices for the event are $125 per person or $250 per couple. The attire for the evening is formal and guests may also dress in theme if they wish.

The Spartanburg Regional Heart Center provides comprehensive, state-of-the-art care to treat a wide variety of heart and vascular conditions. Its consistently high level of care has been recognized by national healthcare rating organizations.

With services including emergency response for cardiac arrest victims, open heart surgery, minimally invasive catheterization procedures, rehab services and educational outreach, community members can expect world-class care at the heart center.
