Through the vision and generosity of the Charles Hamot Strong Family, UPMC Hamot opened its doors 140 years ago.

Help us celebrate this milestone and honor our health care heroes by supporting Hamot Strong.

This year's fundraiser will include:

  • A $2,500 grand prize raffle. Purchase tickets today!
  • An online auction, June 28 through July 1, featuring an awesome silent auction and an opportunity to fund your own scholarship.
  • A basket raffle in the cafeteria from June 21 through July 1, is available to all UPMC employees and hospital guests.

Proceeds from this event support scholarships for UPMC Hamot employees pursuing degrees and certifications, as well as scholarships for students at the new UPMC Jameson School of Nursing at UPMC Hamot.

Please help us support these very important initiatives. If you are able to donate any items for our auction, please reach out to Katie King at by June 18.

Hamot Health Foundation has funded millions of dollars in scholarships and educational initiatives for UPMC Hamot employees — and your contribution will help fund these for 140 more years to come!
