CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A coronation ceremony for the 2013 Memorial King and Queen of Hearts was held at Christus Spohn Memorial Hospital on Friday.

Each year, the hospital associates nominate three men and three women who have worked for the hospital for more than 10 years. Those contestants then hold fundraisers for the American Heart Association's Heart Walk campaign. This year's court raised some $14,000.

This year's king is Jose Rodriguez from the support services department, and the queen is Linda Garcia from the primary care services department.
