On Thursday, April 19, the San Diego County Medical Society Foundation will host ¡Héroes de la Salud! (Heroes of Health), the organization's inaugural friend and fund raiser featuring Los Lobos. The band is probably best known for their 1987 title track on the feature film soundtrack for La Bamba, which became a number one single in the U.S., earning them a platinum record.

Chaired jointly by Dr. Ramin Raiszadeh and Dr. Gwendolyn Henao, and Dr. Suman and Julie Sinha, the event proceeds will benefit the SDCMSF Project Access San Diego program and honor the foundation’s healthcare partners. In addition to the performance by Los Lobos, the evening’s festivities will offer food, beverages and a raffle, which includes as of this writing:

Del Mar Turf Club tickets

Overnight accommodations in Palm Springs

Padres tickets.

According to SDCMSF Executive Director Barbara Mandel, “This is our first-ever event of this kind and we’re very excited that Los Lobos was available for this engagement...we’re also honored that the President of the California Medical Association, Dr. James Hay, will be in attendance to help us launch our inaugural event to benefit a program that brings medical relief to hundreds of low-income San Diegans annually.”

Now in its fourth year, Project Access San Diego provides free medical care to uninsured San Diego residents that facilitate their transition back into the workforce after suffering from a debilitating medical condition. Hundreds of physicians, nurses, staff and volunteers from SDCMSF healthcare partners (full list of partners located at http://sdcmsf.org/healthcare-partners) contribute their time and talent to Surgery Day medical events under the Project Access San Diego program.

Tickets are limited and may be purchased online for $100 per person ($50 tax deductible) at http://www.sdcmsf.org.

¡Héroes de la Salud!: Thursday, April 19, 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm at Anthology, located in Little Italy at 1337 India Street.
