Welcome and thank you for your interest in this year’s event.

You are cordially invited to join Lending Hearts in an evening of celebration & hope at the 2020 Lending Hearts Gala, Thursday, February 27, 2020 at the Fairmont Pittsburgh.  We are thrilled and honored to present the 2020 Lending Hearts Friend Award to  KDKA-TV Sports Director/Anchor, Mr. Bob Pompeani and the Lending Hearts Ambassador Award to Ms. Christina Dickerson, owner of Dickerson Creative Communications. 

Lending Hearts Friend Award

Bob Pompeani personifies what it means to lend your heart to others.  He has a love and kindheartedness for others that inspires all who know him. He, unfortunately, also knows the pain of a loved one battling cancer.  For six years, Bob has emceed the annual Lending Hearts Gala and has been a true friend and advocate for Lending Hearts, our youth and their families.

Lending Hearts Ambassador Award

Christina Dickerson’s advocacy for Lending Hearts began as a volunteer and member of the Lending Hearts Board of Directors.  Even when her position as a board member came to an end, Christina continued to share Lending Hearts’ mission through media and outreach.  She has also been instrumental in the creation of Lending Hearts’ annual event, Steel City Sip & Sweets. 

We look forward to honoring these wonderful individuals and celebrating with you on February 27, 2020!
