“Straight from the Hear”



    Straight from the Heart was held at LaCentre in Westlake with 500 supporters attending, many in theme-appropriate crimson evening wear. Proceeds support the heart centers of the four western region hospitals of the Cleveland Clinic: Fairview, Lakewood, Lutheran and Medina.
    Monica Robbins, senior health correspondent for WKYC-TV 3, served as mistress of ceremonies. During the program, speakers included Dr. David Bronson, president and CEO of the Cleveland Clinic Regional Hospitals, and Janice Murphy, president of Fairview and Lakewood Hospitals.  
    Straight from the Heart is known for its incredible raffles and prize wheels. At a cost of $100 per ticket, the buyer has a chance at 40 fabulous prizes.The event also included a grand prize of $100,000! The pleasure of announcing raffle winners went to Kristin Broadbent, director of the Lakewood Hospital Foundation, David Dombrowiak, president and CEO of the Community West Foundation and Fred DeGrandis, Cleveland Clinic Community Physician Partnership and Quality Alliance president.   
    After dinner, guests helped themselves to a dessert and coffee bar and then danced  to the music of LaBamba and the Hubcaps.
    This year’s returning chairperson, Victor Hall, was there in spirit but not in person. He is serving overseas on active duty with the Navy. His efforts, and those of the Straight from the Heart executive committee, yielded a net profit exceeding $180,000. STORY AND PHOTOGRAPHS BY CAROLINE R. MERK
