Monongahela Valley Hospital’s (MVH) Gala 30, sponsored by the Mon-Vale Health Resources Fund Development Committee and MVH’s Office of Fund Development, was held in the Grand Ballroom of the Wyndham Grand in downtown Pittsburgh on May 19. The annual black-tie fundraiser took guests to a galaxy far, far away with the theme “Galactic Night.”

Monongahela Valley Hospital President and CEO Louis J. Panza Jr. and wife, Cheryl Panza.

Nearly 600 guests enjoyed the out-of-this-world theme, dressed in their best “galactic” attire and helped to raise $155,000 for the hospital. Top sponsors of the evening were Doctors First, Gateway Health, Giant Eagle (made possible by the Allridge and Bartolotta families), Key Bank, OSPTA Hand and Physical Health and OSPTA Home Health and Hospice.

MVH’s galas typically celebrate exemplary individuals for their commitment to excellence with Dimensions in Performance Awards. This year at Gala 30, MVH announced the creation of the Monongahela Valley Hospital Foundation.

“Seven years ago, we created our Office of Fund Development to establish a formal fundraising program,” said Louis J. Panza Jr., president and CEO of Monongahela Valley Hospital, “We are now taking our fundraising efforts to the next level with the creation of the Monongahela Valley Hospital Foundation.”

The newly formed foundation will help strengthen individual and corporate relationships; enable the health system to further partner with small businesses and other organizations to directly impact quality care; allow the hospital to remain on the cutting edge of health care with upgraded technology, state-of-the-art equipment and the creation of new programs; help to foster a culture of philanthropy and awareness of community health and wellness needs; and be instrumental in supplementing the shortfall in payer reimbursements.

“Monongahela Valley Hospital provides health care, wellness and preventive education, but we are really in the people business. We are people helping people and that’s what our newly formed Foundation is all about,” concluded Mr. Panza.

Gala 30 began with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres at 6 p.m., followed by dinner at 7 p.m.

"Galactic Night" came to a close with music and dancing from one of Pittsburgh's finest variety bands, Finesse.
