29th Annual Pittsburgh Heart Ball - Heart Of A Champion

The evening of February 17th, 2018 was an unforgettable evening of entertainment and hope at the 29th Annual Pittsburgh chapter of the American Heart Association’s Heart Ball at the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Downtown Hotel in Downtown Pittsburgh, PA.

Like the 28 previous years, the 29th annual Heart Ball saw community members, medical professionals and corporate leaders throughout the greater Pittsburgh area come together to help celebrate the lifesaving work of the American Heart Association. From a gourmet dinner to the silent and live auction – it was an exciting night of glitz and glamour.   

The theme of the 29th annual Pittsburgh American Heart Association's Heart Ball was “Heart of a Champion”, and this year's event honored a pair of champions in the medical field of the City of Champions; among the honorees were Dr. Flordeliza Villanueva, who was awarded with the Pulse of Pittsburgh Award; and Timothy Powell, who was awarded with the Excellence in Nursing Award.

Overall, over 550 invited supporters came out to help celebrate the recipients this year's Heart Ball and $1.2 million was raised for research and prevention of stroke and heart attack education.

This year's Heart Ball began with a VIP reception along with a cocktail party where chef Claudy M. Pierre did a live cooking demonstration, and also featured artist Cody Sabol created paintings for the live auction. The official Drumline of the Pittsburgh Steelers, The Pittsburgh Steeline, helped lead everyone into the ballroom where alongside the event's emcee, KDKA-TV’s Bob Pompeani, the American Heart Association's Greater Pittsburgh Region director Deb Frick Banks was present to thank all who attended for their support of the Ball, and the Pittsburgh chapter of the AHA.
