Fellows Research Day - Pittsburgh Heart Ball

Updated:Nov 10,2015

The 2016 Pittsburgh Heart Ball will take place on Saturday, February 20th at the Pittsburgh Wyndham Grand Hotel.  
As over 900 of our guests experienced last year, this is an exciting and entertaining evening, including marvelous dining, dancing and taking part in the extraordinary live and silent auctions.

As one of Pittsburgh’s premiere social and fundraising events, the Pittsburgh Heart Ball is the American Heart Association - Allegheny Division’s largest fundraising event. Seventy five percent of contributions support research, school-site programs and public and professional education programs in this region.

Currently, the American Heart Association is funding 37 research projects totaling more than $8.5 million in the Pittsburgh area. 
The funding from the Heart Ball directly supports the American Heart Association’s mission of “Building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.”
This affair also marks the presentation of the Peter J. Safar Pulse of Pittsburgh Award. This year, the award will be presented to Dr. Robert Kormos.  A private reception will be held from 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm honoring our honoree's work. All Fellows Research Day winners and their guest are cordially invited to join us.
