Colleen Connor's Philadelphia Gala Raises the Bar


Colleen Connor had a wish that her health would improve enough so she could host a fundraiser and awareness campaign for pulmonary hypertension. On April 27, not only did she fulfill her wish, she achieved a significant milestone for PHA -- hosting one of our most successful fundraisers ever!

Colleen, along with the support of her network of family, friends and colleagues, hosted the inaugural Philadelphia's Hope for a Cure Gala at the Springfield Country Club in Springfield, Pa., where the Philly-area community enjoyed a night of dinner, dancing and bidding on auction items. Their efforts raised more than $200,000 towards PH research and patient- and family-serving programs. Congrats to Colleen and her team!

You too can support the cause by hosting a special event, whether it be something as grand as a gala or something more simple like a house party. Learn more and get involved
