Bags and Bucks

AGH Auxiliary

The Allegheny General Hospital Auxiliary donated proceeds from their annual fall event, Bags and Bucks Purse and Cash Bash in support of the AHN Allegheny General Hospital Patient Care Fund and the Mighty Minds Project at Martin Luther King Elementary School, in Pittsburgh’s North Side. 

The check was presented by Cheri Jackel, president of the AGH Auxiliary to Dr. Imran Qadeer, president of Allegheny General Hospital, and Kristen O’Brien from the AHN Office of Development. 

Thank you to the Allegheny General Hospital Auxiliary for your dedication to supporting AHN Allegheny General employees, patients, and community members.

Healing through Music and Smiles

Music Smiles

Thanks to the generosity of the AGH Auxiliary to the Sonny Pugar Memorial Program Music Smiles, local musicians perform live music to create a healing environment for patients, visitors, and care givers at Allegheny General Hospital.

Local artist, Danny McElroy, pictured above with Auxiliary members, Ruth Ann Finnegan, Cheri Jackel, and Sue Schreck, kicked off the first Music Smiles event in December. Six additional sessions with various artists are slated for 2023.

Event Highlights


The impact of philanthropy to AHN over the past decade was celebrated at a recent gathering with AHN advocates and donors. 

Thank you to Dr. David Blandino, Chairman of the Board, Dr. Doug Henry, Vice President of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health, and Kelly Kassab, Chief Operating Officer for AHN’s Jefferson and Canonsburg Hospitals, for sharing amazing stories of how philanthropy is changing the lives of so many people in our community.

These are a few highlights shared at the celebration:

  • Funding from The Joseph A. Massaro Jr. Alzheimer’s Research Fund at The Pittsburgh Foundation and the Henry L. Hillman Foundation supported initiatives and research that help patients with Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and dementia as well as their family-members-turned-caregivers.
  • Grateful patient Margarita Hornung with her husband Mike , hosted their inaugural ovarian cancer fundraiser, 'Teal City' in honor of Dr. Krivak, Director of the Ovarian Cancer Center of Excellence to raise funds to support ovarian cancer research.
  • The launch and growth of the Talent Attraction Program (TAP) - a creative and vital work-study program that places students on a specific career track in the field of their choice.
There are countless examples of how your support has transformed our clinical programs, advanced innovations, enhanced the patient experience, and strengthened our communities over the past decade.

Thank you for your partnership and support to AHN.
