3rd Annual Pittsburgh Amyloidosis Research Benefit a Smashing Success

Montour Heights Country Club was over-flowing with amyloidosis awareness on Friday, October 26, 2018 for our 3rd Annual Pittsburgh Amyloidosis Research Benefit. Over 100 friends and family came to support this special night, honoring the Chairwoman who started this event, Dr. Darcy Tannehill, who passed away in April. Her daughter, Courtney A. Sullivan, and son-in-law, Dr. Adam Sullivan, were the Co-Chairs this year and did an amazing job gathering silent auction gifts and over 90 bottles of wine for the annual “wine pull”.

Guests enjoyed a live jazz band, delicious hot appetizers and a gourmet meal plus the opportunity to bid on all the unique silent auction gifts. Over $53,000 was raised thanks to our generous donors and attendees, plus our event sponsors: University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Eidos, Alnylam, Allegheny Health Network, Akcea and Takeda.

A great night was had by all and we thank the Pittsburgh community for making this annual event a success. See you next year!
