Media and Press Information

The Hillman Cancer Center Gala raises millions of dollars for cancer research and treatment at the Hillman Cancer Center, which facilitates research and patient care through the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute (UPCI) and UPMC CancerCenter.

UPCI is the only facility in Western Pennsylvania to be designated a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute. This prestigious status means that we are viewed as a leader in the battle against cancer, offering a wide range of programs and services to our patients and our community.

This year's gala will take place on Thursday, September 29 at CONSOL Energy Center. We are so pleased to host the event in this truly beautiful and exciting space. We are grateful to have the outstanding leadership of Henry Hillman and Cathy and Sy Holzer, our Honorary Chairs for the evening, with Leslie and Jim Rutherford and Diane and Cliff Rowe as the Event Co-Chairs. PNC will be the Presenting Sponsor once again this year.
