The Amyloidosis Foundation is proud to announce the 3nd Annual Pittsburgh Amyloidosis Research Benefit on Friday, October 26, 2018. Our goal is to raise donations for the AF Research Grant Program. Since 2005, the foundation has awarded over $1.7 million to young researchers pursuing a cure for amyloidosis. Dr. Darcy Tannehill, amyloidosis patient, Pittsburgh resident and member of the Amyloidosis Foundation Board of Directors, is the Chairwoman for our fundraiser.

The event will be at the Montour Heights Country Club starting at 5:30pm. The evening will include strolling appetizers, gourmet dinner, live music, wine raffle, cash bar and a silent auction. Proceeds from this event will allow us to continue our support for ground-breaking medical research.

Join us on this special night as we raise funds for research and celebrate our amyloidosis community! Last year we raised $58,000 and with your help we are confident we can surpass that total this year.
