On Feb. 14, The Joe Beretta Foundation will present their inaugural Hopeful Hearts Valentine’s Gala. The event will take place in the Grand Ballroom of the Omni William Penn Hotel, and feature live entertainment by eight-piece powerhouse band, No Bad Juju.

The Joe Beretta Foundation exists to meet the practical needs of advanced heart failure patients and their families by providing emergency housing, emotional support and stability in crisis. They currently serve patients in four hospitals across two cities, including UPMC in Pittsburgh. 

The evening will include a delicious three-course meal and world class entertainment, all set in one of Pittsburgh’s most stunning venues. Additionally, guests will enjoy an impressive silent auction with a wide variety of items that include VIP tickets, luxury vacations, and much more.

Photo opportunities and florals will be provided by Design Muse Styling, whose portfolio includes styling events for The American Cancer Society, Dillard’s department store, Badgley Mischka, Creme de La Mer and Jessica Simpson.

The gala would not be possible without the partnership and generous support of CareDx and UPMC. Tickets are $150 each and can be purchased at www.TheJoeBerettaFoundation.com.

All proceeds from The Hopeful Hearts Valentine’s Gala will go towards assisting Pittsburgh families in medical, financial and emotional crisis that have exhausted every other option.
