Mosaic hearts will be up for auction online starting this afternoon to benefit San Francisco General Hospital, which is holding a series of annual fundraising events this month.
The hearts are part of the 10th anniversary celebration of the “Hearts in San Francisco” series held each year to support the SFGH Foundation.
The online auction on select hearts starts at 1:30 p.m. today. Bidders interested in winning the artsy hearts can go to http://givingworks.ebay.com/hearts-in-sf.
Fifteen of the 6.5-foot-tall hearts will also be on display at the Macy’s Union Square Stockton Street storefront from today until the annual Heroes and Hearts luncheon on Feb. 13 at AT&T Park.
A tabletop heart designed with more than 12,000 Swarovski crystals is on display as well at the Wilkes Bashford clothing store at 375 Sutter St.
Other “Hearts” events are planned to raise money for the foundation, which helps subsidize grants and other hospital programming.
In 2013, the SFGH Foundation awarded 55 grants.
