Millennium Ball Benefits New Reagan UCLA Medical Center

UCLA Health supporters including celebrities, top executives, major donors and government officials attended UCLA’s Millennium Ball 2006, a benefit that raised $5 million for the new Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, scheduled to open in fall 2007.

Brad Grey, chairman and CEO of Paramount Pictures Corporation, and Jim Wiatt, CEO of the William Morris Agency, were co-chairs. The Millennium Ball is the first of a series of events scheduled through 2007 to celebrate the I.M. Pei-designed “hospital of the future.”

The new 10-story structure will combine the operations of the new medical center, the Stewart and Lynda Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital at UCLA and Mattel Children’s Hospital at UCLA.

Approximately 1,000 people who enjoyed the entertainment of talk show host Jimmy Kimmel and nine-time Grammy winner Alicia Keys attended the event, hosted by the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. Robert Iger, president and CEO of the Walt Disney Company, received the Mercury Award, recognizing his life accomplishments and commitment to medical care excellence.
