CRF Returns to The Plaza for its Annual Gala in December
Dr. Henry A. Kissinger to be Honored
For the third year in a row, the Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) will hold its signature fundraiser, The Annual Pulse of the City Gala, in the Grand Ballroom of The Plaza on December 11. CRF will honor world-renowned visionary and former U.S. Secretary of State and National Security Advisor, Dr. Henry A. Kissinger, and will also pay tribute to the career and accomplishments of Dr. Roman W. DeSanctis, a preeminent leader in clinical cardiology for over 50 years.
CRF is returning to The Plaza in large part because of the staff’s attention to detail, the warm and festive atmosphere of the Grand Ballroom, and importantly, the quality and excellence of the service and food. Over 500 guests will gather to celebrate the breakthrough cardiovascular treatments and transformative technologies that have saved lives and drastically improved patient outcomes. The gala will feature a festive reception and dinner program, followed by dancing.
A global leader in the field, CRF is dedicated to improving the survival and quality of life for people with heart disease, the number one cause of death worldwide. Through its research and educational activities, the Foundation helps to accelerate treatments by establishing the safe use of new technologies and therapies so that they can be brought to patients as early as possible.
The goal of this year’s Pulse of the City Gala is to raise over $1 million for research and education. Proceeds from the evening will help CRF to pioneer new initiatives, pursue innovative areas of research, train tomorrow’s physician leaders, and educate the medical community and the public about the importance of heart health.
