The 2018 MHIF Heartbeat Gala was an incredible evening celebrating innovation. We hope you were inspired to find and embrace your adventure! A huge thank you to our sponsors for the evening. Thanks also to everyone who generously gave through the Live Auction and Hope Generator and participated in the fun Systole & Diastole game. More than $160,000 was raised for the Innovation Fund to support physician-initiated research; total gala proceeds exceeded $675,000. Thank you!
