Cedars-Sinai’s Board of Governors Holds Sunset Soirée 

The Cedars-Sinai Board of Governors honored leaders from the worlds of entertainment and sports at its Sunset Soirée held on April 20 at the Warner Bros. Studio Lot Midwest Street in Burbank. Presenters, including host Kevin Hart and Mindy Kaling celebrated the guests of honor Bela Bajaria and Gillian Zucker. Bajaria, Chief Content Officer for Netflix, was recognized with the 2024 Visionary Award. Zucker, President of the L.A. Clippers and Intuit Dome, received the 2024 Inspirational Leadership Award. 

Adam Selkowitz, Chair of the Board of Governors, said the honorees were thoughtfully selected based on their records of excellence in leadership roles. “We’re incredibly lucky to be honoring Bela and Gillian—decision-makers known for their dynamic, creative and innovative thinking that is emblematic of the research we support at Cedars-Sinai,” said Selkowitz. “Our last campaign to support the Board of Governors Innovation Center was like building the rocket; now, with this new campaign, it’s time to blast off.”

Proceeds from the Sunset Soiree will benefit the board’s Innovation to Impact initiative. The campaign’s goal is to raise $60 million to accelerate research and development of treatments for challenging illnesses impacting children, cancer, diabetes, neurological conditions and autoimmune disorders.
