BOO BALL FLYER BANNER

BBcropedOur annual Boo Ball isn’t just an important fund raiser for the foundation, its fun.  AND it was on Halloween this year!  Ghouls and zombies, clowns and hippies danced to the funky sounds of Rudy and the Professionals.  Princesses and witches nibbled on hors d’oeuvres while waiting for the chance to have fortunes read by a psychic reader.

BOO BALL FLYER PANELProceeds from the Boo Ball are used to help fund the Foundation’s signature program, the Medical Equipment Recycling Program (MERP).  This program  loans medical equipment to those who can’t afford to purchase the equipment they need to BOO BALL 201303function.

The Boo Ball party ended with a costume contest, the winners receiving massive UPMC Horizon chocolate bars.  If you couldn’t be there this year, you won’t want to miss it next year!   Thank you to our sponsors and attendees for supporting MERP!

 

 

IMG_0924September 2015 was a record-breaking year for the UPMC Horizon Community Health Foundation’s Annual Poker Run.  This, the tenth anniversary of the event, saw a registration of 155 riders and generated a whopping $3,300 for the Transportation Fund.  This year, the ride was 164 miles and the winner with the best poker hand won $150.00.  Because it was the 10th Anniversary, one lucky winner walked away with a great overnight package at the Foxburg Winery and Inn/Allegheny Grill.
