Vincentian rallies families, community, and local businesses for genuine fun in doing the important work of raising necessary funding for our homes. Our three signature events are hugely successful and fun for all.
The Golden Heart Gala is an annual recognition of local philanthropists who make a tremendous impact on our community. This year’s theme, La Vie en Rosé, celebrates a Night in Paris atop Mt. Washington at LeMont on March 3, 2018. Rocking for Residents, our ever-popular rock-a-thon and day-long party, is a run-away sensation city-wide and a blast for all ages. For a blissful summer day on the green, the Sr. Eileen Charity Golf Classic will make you smile. Read all about our signature events below and join us at one or all of them.
PARTICIPATION IN ALL EVENTS IS WELCOME!

Golden Heart Gala
A Festive Evening in Paris Awaits! Be transported to the streets of Paris with elegant French cuisine, rosé wine tasting, a virtual Paris bike ride, street performers, a photo boot, a raffle for a trip to Paris and online bidding auction! With the new Online Auction this year you will be able to place bids on items before the night of the event.
This year's Golden Heart Awardees are Ray and Kathy Buehler. The Buehlers have built a legacy of compassion and selfless investment in Pittsburgh. From their days working with Sr. Eileen to make Vincentian Marian Manor the best it could be, to Ray’s leadership on Vincentian’s board and beyond, Ray and Kathy’s generosity has improved the quality of life for countless Vincentian seniors. We honor the Buehlers for their part in making Vincentian, and our region, a better place.
