About 900 guests celebrated the opening of the new Prebys Cardiovascular Institute on the campus of Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla. Guests enjoyed an elegant dinner along with live entertainment by William Close and the Earth Harp Collective, and had the opportunity to tour the new seven-story hospital. Named after San Diego businessman and philanthropist Conrad Prebys, the institute opened for patient care on March 8. At the gala, Prebys was honored for his $45 million leadership gift to Scripps to support construction of the hospital. The evening gala raised $3 million to help support the hospital.
