Heart of Gold Gala

Our next Heart of Gold Gala is being planned for late 2019.

Thank you to everyone who helped make our 3rd Annual Heart of Gold Gala a success. The year 2017 has been a blessing for Olivia’s Heart Project.

Olivia's Heart Project Heart of Gold GalaToday, we have 271 AEDs in our Kern County Schools. We have screened 292 children and young adults. We identified 28 children/young adults with abnormal results which could be determined serious upon follow-up.

As Olivia’s Mom, President and Founder, I’m truly thankful to everyone who volunteered their time and support. I can tell you that every volunteer is committed to helping keep Olivia’s Heart Project going strong, and it’s inspiring to see.

A big thanks to our Sponsors, who have been extraordinarily generous this year and made this event possible.

  • Bakersfield Heart Hospital
  • Chain, Cohn, Stiles
  • Children’s Hospital Los Angeles
  • Shafter Rotary Foundation
  • Stockdale Florist
  • Via Heart Project

And last but not the least, I want to thank our family, friends and our community. Without your continued support, we would never be able to put on events like these.

Next year our gala will be at Seven Oaks on Saturday, November 3, 2018.
See you then!


Our Heart of Gold Gala is a time to enjoy an evening of fine dining as we thank the community for their support and share our goals for the next year. It is also an opportunity  to learn about how Olivia’s Heart Project is raising awareness about Sudden Cardiac Arrest in the community and how you can help.

Proceeds from tickets help us screen youth for risk factors associated with Sudden Cardiac Arrest and assist in our mission to place AEDs in our local Middle Schools.
