To coincide with the event, the students at Hillel School of Tampa are raising money to help pay for someone from the Tampa area to receive a life-saving cardiac procedure. The mission of the Larry King Cardiac Foundation is to provide funding for such procedures to those who have limited means or no insurance.
Tickets to the "From the Heart with Larry King" event are $100. It will be held Sunday, February 22, 2009 at 11:30am at the A La Carte Event Pavilion in Tampa.

The Larry King Cardiac Foundation (LKCF) was established in 1988 to provide funding for life-saving treatment for individuals who, due to limited means or no insurance, would otherwise be unable to receive the treatment and care they so desperately need. The Foundation works in conjunction with hospitals throughout the nation to ensure that such patients receive proper medical attention. Doctors performing these surgeries do so at no charge. Hospitals are compensated only for the materials used. Hearts are repaired. Families are given another chance. Lives are saved.
