2014 SCA/SCAF Gala in New Orleans
Thanks to all 310 attendees of the SCA/SCA Foundation Annual Gala in New Orleans – Fellows for the Future! The event was sponsored by NONIN and the National Board of Echocardiography. Guests enjoyed genuine New Orleans fare and spirits to satisfy any taste – all while listening to live New Orleans jazz. Event Co-Chairs Drs. James Abernathy and Douglas Shook, of Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) and Brigham and Women’s, respectively, kept the evening moving at a steady pace mixing prizes for many along with the announcement of fundraising awards. SCA Foundation Board Chair Dr. Joyce Wahr made one last plea for donations and helped the Co-Chairs announce an extra $14,000 raised beyond ticket sales.
Fundraising Excellence awards were given to Brigham and Women’s, California/San Diego, MUSC, University of Pittsburgh Medical College, University of Minnesota, and the Texas Heart Institute. More than 70 donations were received by these programs and others and set the stage for the next generation of donors.
