LOS ANGELES, March 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The Heart Foundation at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, dedicated to raising awareness of heart disease, honors celebrity chef, restaurateur, television personality, businessman and philanthropist Wolfgang Puck with The Steven S. Cohen Humanitarian Award on May 30, 2009, at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. The evening includes surprise entertainment and a spectacular culinary experience with dishes prepared by special guest chefs.

The name Wolfgang Puck is synonymous with the best of restaurant hospitality and the ultimate in all aspects of the culinary arts. Puck has built a gastronomic empire that encompasses three separate entities: Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining, Wolfgang Puck Catering and Wolfgang Puck Worldwide. Central to all of Wolfgang Puck's endeavors is his Wolfgang's Eat, Love, Live(R) (WELL) philosophy which means a commitment to provide food made with only the freshest and healthiest natural and organic ingredients available, to celebrate local farmers and seasonal ingredients and to use only humanely-raised animal products.

The Heart Foundation's goal is to prevent, cure and eradicate heart disease, the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States today. The foundation supports the groundbreaking cardiac research of Dr. P.K. Shah and his colleagues at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Dr. Shah and his colleagues are in discussions with the FDA to obtain permission to launch human testing in the last quarter of 2009 of the heart disease vaccine they have developed.

The Heart Foundation was established in 1996 in memory of Steven S. Cohen, an incredible husband, father, son, brother and friend, who lost his life to Sudden Cardiac Death at the age of 35 with no warning signs. The Steven S. Cohen Humanitarian Award recognizes outstanding individuals who effect change within their communities and demonstrate a commitment to the betterment of humankind.
