Healthy Start Maternal and Child Health Gala

May 19 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Our Maternal and Child Health Gala is BACK! Join Healthy Start Pittsburgh for a fabulous night of community, compassion, and celebration.

About this event
Healthy Start Pittsburgh has been eagerly awaiting to commemorate our 30 Years Strong, and we finally feel we can safely celebrate this milestone—with special guest Tatyana Ali and YOU. Grab your ticket, an outfit that inspires you, and a fellow community health advocate, and we’ll see you on May 19 at 5:30 PM at Omni William Penn Hotel!

What’s in store?
This year’s gala will include live music during our pre-dinner reception. Stay tuned for the incredible local artist who is yet to be announced. Our silent auction will feature donated goodies from across Greater Pittsburgh’s local business scene. A huge thank you to our generous in-kind donors! Enjoy hors d’oeuvres and our premium cash bar while you socialize and shop. A formal seated dinner will be provided by Omni William Penn Hotel. Finally, our keynote presentation will feature actor and maternal health advocate Tatyana Ali. In a 2021 BlogHer article, Ali shared, “I went to Harvard. I was a child actor. I lived a very privileged life. The birth of my son and my pregnancy was really my first interaction with a type of racism that could kill me and affect the health of my child.” Ms. Ali uses her celebrity platform to create greater awareness about health equity and maternal and child health disparities. We are elated to highlight her work as part of our 30-year Anniversary!

Don’t forget!
