Dr. Vogelbach will headline Mardi Gras 2013
Lindburgh McPherson, Sherry Wang and Patty Soldo will co-chair 'beads and boas' event
For his faithful support of Methodist Hospital and the clinical care he has provided to thousands of patients as director of cardiology over the past 15 years, Dr. K. Heiner Vogelbach has been selected to preside as king of Mardi Gras 2013, one of the hospital's premier and most popular fundraising events.
More than 500 local community members and businesses, including two dozen restaurants, are expected to participate in the 18th annual "beads and boas" celebration, which will be held Feb. 12 at Sirona's Restaurant, Santa Anita Park, 285 W. Huntington Dr., Arcadia.
During Dr. Vogelbach's "crowning" evening, the 80z All-Stars, one of Southern California's premier 1980s tribute bands, will provide lively entertainment. Other fun activities will include a silent auction, a Mardi Gras parade, an Elvis Presley impersonator, dancing and mouth-watering cochon de lait prepared by some of the San Gabriel Valley's most celebrated and successful restaurants. Certainly, Mardi Gras 2013 will be an event that will benefit the hospital for many years to come.
Co-chairing this fun-filled event, featuring a 1980s theme and leveraging a backdrop of old New Orleans to raise money in support of the hospital's outstanding cardiac catheterization lab, are four-time chair/co-chair Lindburgh McPherson, Methodist Hospital Foundation board member Sherry Wang and longtime hospital supporter Patty Soldo.
