THE PARTY Vintage cameras clicked as guests arrived on the red carpet at the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort in Carlsbad, which hosted the 15th annual Heart of San Diego Gala, “An Affair to Remember: Spotlighting the Golden Era in Glamorous New York and Hollywood.” THE GUESTS OF HONOR Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s chief medical correspondent, served up star power as the master of ceremonies to honor Wendy Walker, a fellow Emmy winner and producer of Larry King Live, and Randall Woods, founder and managing director of Eden Woods Investments, for their long-standing support of the Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center at UC San Diego. THE HIGHLIGHTS What’s a Hollywood theme without a little sparkle and a legend? The reception featured jewelry for purchase, including a suite of jewels from the Elizabeth Taylor estate—we’re talking serious rubies and canary diamonds. The event raised more than $530,000 for the Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center. Talk about hearts of gold. Photography by Melissa Jacobs
