The Hearts in San Francisco project debuted in 2004. Under the leadership of Nancy Bechtle and Ellen Magin Newman, 131 beautiful and inspired heart sculptures were created by local Bay Area artists. For three months, these hearts were placed on display throughout San Francisco for the public to enjoy before being auctioned. Surpassing its original goal, Hearts in San Francisco raised nearly $2 million for the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation. The project generated a new level of exposure for the Foundation’s mission and Zuckerberg San Francisco General’s vital role in the community as a provider of life-saving care to anyone in need, regardless of ability to pay.
