The Joe Beretta Foundation was established to meet the essential, non-medical needs of advanced heart failure patients, caregivers and their families by providing them with emergency housing and financial stability during times of crisis, as well as emotional support. Only 4 percent of hospitals nationwide are able to treat this disease, so the vast majority of patients must travel long distances to receive life-saving care, resulting in fear, isolation and financial distress.

The foundation currently serves patients in five hospitals across two cities, including UPMC Presbyterian and Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, with aspirations of expanding their existing footprint. Since the foundation’s inception in 2016, they’ve assisted 1,100 individuals through all services and provided over 2,500 nights of stay for patients and their families. They’ve helped over 150 families from facing the choice between medical homelessness and hospice.

“We’re overjoyed to be able to hold this year’s Hopeful Hearts Valentine’s Gala at the spectacular Priory Hotel,” said Lillian Beretta, president of the board. “It’s a new location for this event, and we couldn’t be more excited to have this venue as our backdrop. It will be an extraordinary and memorable evening for our guests, all while supporting such an incredible cause.”
