The Family Life Fund would like to thank everyone who was able to attend and support A Sweet Gesture 2016! As a result of your generosity, Family Life raised over $95,000 for the benefit of ACHIEVA, the Down Syndrome Association of Pittsburgh and the Family Life Fund. We hope that you are able to continue to contribute to the Family Life Fund throughout the year so that we can continue our mission of helping families who are coping with a child’s compromised health or well-being.
Stay tuned for future fundraising event information and volunteer opportunities.
Thank you to our 2016 sponsors
About Family Life Fund
The Family Life Fund [501(c)(3)] is dedicated to helping families who are coping with a child’s compromised health or well-being. We recognize and honor the impact of family in a child's life. When a child faces challenges, the entire family is affected.
Formerly an Auxiliary Board of the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC Foundation, the Family Life Fund has reorganized to expand our scope of support, allowing us to reach beyond the walls of the hospital and serve even more families in need.
The Family Life Fund's primary fundraising event,"A Sweet Gesture", is held each February around Valentine's Day as an evening to celebrate love by being with our loved ones, supporting our community, and opening our hearts to the families of children whose health or well-being are compromised. Every year highlights a different theme and features a fabulous dinner, exquisite live auction items, silent auction items and live entertainment. It's an annual tradition not to be missed!
The Family Life Fund supports organizations and community programs throughout the region who are offering care to families and children in crisis and who are facing medical or other challenges.
