    Support the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation by bidding on select large, tabletop and mini-mosaic hearts from the 2015 “Hearts in San Francisco” series on eBay. Bidding has already started and will continue until Thursday, February 12 at 2 p.m., at the conclusion of the Heroes & Hearts Luncheon on the field at AT&T Park.

    The sculptures are available in various sizes to fit any space, perfect for a Valentine’s Day gift. San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center’s new acute care and trauma center will be opening in December 2015. The online sale is open to all and will provide funding for vital programs and initiatives at The General.

    Four tabletop hearts and 11 mini-mosaic hearts will be featured at Macy’s Union Square in the window display on Stockton. One additional tabletop heart, created by designers from Swarovski, will be on display at Wilkes Bashford.

    The exclusive tabletop heart designed by Swarovski designers Alice Payr, Doris Obersteiner, Sonja Marinkovic and Claudia Demetz, was made exclusively for the 2015 series. Hand-crafted in Tyrol, Austria, the one-of-a-kind heart is covered with “Crystal Skin,” a special lacquer composed of millions of the finest, tiny crystals. The surface is decorated with approximately 15,000 crystals of several shapes and sizes in nine different, outstanding color combinations. Other table-top heart selections include an abstract hand-painted design, a collage made of mixed media and two mosaic designs – one of an American flag and one of scenes from Golden Gate Park.

    The “Hearts in San Francisco” charity auction will include exclusive mini-mosaic hearts which dazzle with bright designs in a miniature-size heart. Each mini-mosaic features a local artist’s delicate design made of unique materials. The charity auction’s large hearts include a hand-crafted cityscape made of mosaic glass, a reflective chrome heart, a sculpture created from scratch that integrates solar technology and designs featuring wood panels and a kaleidoscope pattern. 

    Select hearts available for the charity auction will be on display in the Stockton window at Macy’s Union Square beginning Monday, February 2 through Wednesday, February 11, when they will then be transported to AT&T Park for the Heroes & Hearts Luncheon. The Swarovski heart is also on display at Wilkes Bashford until Wednesday, February 11.
