LOS ANGELES, Barbra Streisand and Robert Barth were honored by the Cedars-Sinai Board of Governors at their annual Gala on Tuesday, November 8th at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Proceeds from the Gala, sponsored by Lexus, benefited the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute.  
The Gala was hosted by Seth Rogen, and included a performance by Marvin Hamlisch.
The Board of Governors' current campaign benefits the Board of Governors Heart Stem Cell Center in the top-ranked Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute, led by Eduardo Marban, MD, PhD.
