Rob and Julia Heidt (2023)

St. Vincent de Paul – Cincinnati (SVDP) honored Rob and Julia Heidt during its eighth annual Celebration of Service event, held on Thursday, May 18th at The Anderson Pavilion.


More than 400 guests gathered to honor the Heidts, who were instrumental in the success of SVDP’s Upward Spiral Comprehensive Campaign, helping to drastically expand access to programs and services through the construction of the Don and Phyllis Neyer Outreach Center. The Heidt Family Foundation Health Services wing has expanded the SVDP Charitable Pharmacy’s ability to provide holistic care for our neighbors through initiatives such as the addition of a nurse practitioner who provides primary care onsite.


The event included a fundraising component to support SVDP’s Charitable Pharmacy, which provides medication and medical care free of charge to neighbors in need. Through gifts made during the fund appeal, sponsorships and pre-event donations, guests helped raise more than $824,000 in the Heidts’ honor, the largest totals in the event’s history.
