The Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary for the Del Mar Unit recently held their Heard it Through the Grapevine event at the Del Mar Country Club in support of the Rady Children’s Hospital Heart Transplant Unit. The venue held over 350 attendees, most of whom were residents of North County. The Del Mar Unit was able to net $150,000 for the recently established heart transplant program. Attendees enjoyed food, live music, wine, and a silent auction. The donations to the transplant program will directly fund transplants for the program’s first 14 patients, therefore 100% of funds raised went to support the cost of the surgeries. Donations are still being accepted for the Heart Transplant Unit and can be made online by visiting For more information on the Del Mar Unit you can like their Facebook page or contact them directly through their website.
