The Heart Foundation Board of Directors Member
Lisa Sapiro has been involved with The Heart Foundation since its inception. Lisa did not personally know Steve Cohen, but one day while at the gym, she overheard Chairman Mark Litman speaking about the sudden passing of his best friend to a massive heart attack at the age of 35. Mark shared that he was in the planning stages of forming a foundation to raise money to increase awareness of heart disease and promote early detection in Steve’s memory. Lisa asked how she could help and the rest, as they say, is “history.” Lisa creates and coordinates many of The Heart Foundation’s events, including our Steven. S Cohen Humanitarian Award Dinner Gala, our family events and our education forums. She has also assisted in the creative marketing and branding of The Heart Foundation. Lisa runs her own full-service event production and management company, Lisa Sapiro Unique Promotions and Special Events, which specializes in corporate and non-profit functions. Lisa also sits on the Board of Directors for UCLA Jonsson Cancer Center and served as the liaison between STOP CANCER and UCLA’s Jonsson Cancer Center. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Food Science from San Francisco State University.
