The University of California, San Diego’s 16th annual Heart of San Diego Gala was held Feb. 9 at the Grand Hyatt Aviara Resort to honor local philanthropist and community leader Audrey Geisel. The event included dinner, dancing and a silent auction. Former San Diego Charger Rolf Benirschke served as the evening’s emcee. All proceeds from the event will benefit the UC San Diego Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center.
Audrey Geisel, wife of the late Theodor “Dr. Seuss” Geisel, has provided longstanding support to the Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center.
