On Saturday, March 24, 2012, the Allegheny County Medical Society (ACMS) Foundation will host “Pittsburgh Proud”— its annual community awards and fundraising gala. Taking place at the Omni William Penn Hotel from 6:30 – 11:00 p.m., Pittsburgh Proud will be an evening that celebrates many reasons to be proud of the Pittsburgh region – including this year’s ACMS award winners who have
done a great deal to meet the healthcare needs of the Pittsburgh community.
The gala promises to be a wonderful affair, providing the perfect opportunity and setting to socialize with friends and colleagues. The medical society will recognize Rajiv R. Varma, MD, 2012 ACMS president, along with other newly installed officers at a special VIP champagne reception prior to the gala. An open reception will follow featuring lively entertainment provided by The Cadillac Jazz Trio, delicious food and an awards ceremony celebrating the 2011 ACMS award winners who make us “Pittsburgh Proud.” Ken Rice, news anchor for KDKA-TV will serve as the master of ceremonies during the awards ceremony and as auctioneer for the Foundation’s live auction! Fabulous items such as luxury vacations, fine jewelry, designer handbags, sports memorabilia and more will also be available to the highest bidder at a silent auction. Other fun surprises will add to the festive atmosphere.
Tickets to attend the gala are $160 per person. Tables are also available for purchase. All of the proceeds will directly benefit the ACMS Foundation Medical Student Scholarship and Community College of Allegheny County Health Care Career Scholarship funds. Over the years the ACMS Foundation has provided over $2 million to these and other worthwhile causes.
