Dr. Joe Turcillo Jr. with artist Alexi Allens

Film moguls, renowned celebrities and glitterati came to Dr. Joe Turcillo Jr.’s Malibu estate earlier this month for the unveiling of artist Alexi Allens’ “Romantica” series of painting. The event featured classical dance performances by world-renowned belly dancer Charise Cynar and live music performed on keyboards by California-based musician Larry Flahive.

Turcillo, a leading cardiology and internal medicine specialist, is known for his work helping others and doing fundraising. He and Allens recently worked together on a charity event that took place at Universal Studios to raise money for the Discey Cancer Center.
