Three leading executives at architecture and engineering firm Bergmann Associates will bring their traditional Italian family recipes to life at the third annual 3 Amici Traditional Italian Dinner fundraiser to benefit the American Heart Association. Pietro “Pete” Giovenco, Andrew Raus and Mark Johns will once again put on their chef hats to cook up dishes that range from pastas to meats. The event will be held Saturday, June 3, at 5:30 p.m. The firm will host community members and employees in their new corporate office space at Tower 280.

“Bergmann has a long-standing commitment to designing healthy communities and supporting the Rochester American Heart Association,” said Raus, vice president, Bergmann Associates. Bergmann executives will come together to prepare delicious dishes from their own family recipes and proceeds from the unique fundraising effort will benefit the Rochester American Heart Association. The firm’s executive connections to the Rochester American Heart Association Board include Raus, who is a member of the board and the executive leadership team for Heart Walk.

The menu for the evening comes from decades of traditional Italian family recipes and authentic cuisine. Guests will also be able to enjoy drinks and entertainment. Tickets are $50 per person and available by calling (585) 232-5135 or emailing

“Heart disease has affected many and hits close to home for the team at Bergmann Associates,” said Giovenco, president, Bergmann Associates. “The firm is grateful to have connected with a great organization like the American Heart Association, which has dedicated its support to fight the disease.”

In past years, Bergmann Associates has hosted the gourmet Italian dinner at different venues around the city. The first and second annual events featured up to six authentic family recipes and raised $25,000. The firm participates in other various charity events throughout the year, such as sponsoring the Rochester Heart Walk and Run and other in-office fundraisers to support the American Heart Association.
