Great Night at the 2nd Annual Pittsburgh Amyloidosis Research Benefit

Great Night at the 2nd Annual Pittsburgh Amyloidosis Research Benefit

The Pittsburgh community came out strong to support the Amyloidosis Research Benefit for the second year in a row on Friday, October 27. The proceeds from this benefit totaled over $50,000!

The co-chairs for this event, AF board member and patient Darcy B. Tannehill, Ed.D. and her daughter Courtney A. Sullivan, were proud once again to donate these funds to the Amyloidosis Foundation Research Grant Program.

The Montour Heights Country Club hosted the event and over 90 people had a wonderful time enjoying live jazz music and delicious food. Guests participated in the silent auction (with over 80 items), a putting green and wild card contest plus the annual  wine pull (a choice of many beautifully wrapped bottles) which made the night very special. 

We heard patient Darby Yohman talk about his amyloidosis journey and Julie Kowalski, speak about her role as a caregiver for her husband. It was important and very touching to hear how this rare disease has affected their lives and the need to fund research for a cure. Please mark your calendar for next year’s benefit on Friday October 26, 2018! 

Our sponsors made this benefit possible with their generous sponsorships, listed below.
