Event Information

This year’s UPMC Hillman Cancer Center Gala will be held on Thursday, September 20, 2018 at PPG Paints Arena! Each year, the Gala recognizes millions of dollars raised in support of UPMC Hillman Cancer Center’s fight against cancer. We are grateful to our gala co-chairs Barbara and Herb Shear and Ramsey and Mike Lyons for all of their efforts this year as we continue working toward a common goal to bring new hope to those whose lives have been touched by cancer.

Join us for this year’s event as we celebrate the extraordinary team of individuals who work tirelessly searching for new and better cancer treatments and therapies. These men and women have established a standard of excellence in cancer research that reaches far beyond Pittsburgh. To continue this good work, we rely on support from our community partners, our private and corporate supporters, and from individuals like you. This year, we are proud to once again thank PNC for serving as our presenting sponsor and Cathy and Sy Holzer for being our honorary co-chairs.

We look forward to celebrating with you in September!
