Hosanna House offers safe and structured instruction through programs in its Makerspace, aviation lab and outdoor classroom.
For the past 26 years, The Women’s Board of Pittsburgh has held an annual benefit luncheon to raise financial support and publicity for nonprofit organizations which promote the welfare and development of children in the Greater Pittsburgh area. From the first recipient (Pace School in 1992), to the most recent beneficiaries (Pediatric Palliative Care Coalition, Sharpsburg Library, Full STEAM Ahead program in 2017, Project SEED in 2016, and Beverly’s Birthdays in 2015), The Women’s Board of fifty-member volunteers have worked to raise funds focusing on those nonprofits whose mission is targeted at children. In addition, the board solicits financial support from local donors, foundations, businesses, and generous sponsors.
Event chairs for this year’s benefit luncheon are Susan Boyle and Sandy McInerney. The day will include a cooking demonstration by renowned chef John Bergquist IV (Executive Chef for Out of the Fire Cafe in Donegal, PA), an informal fashion show by Carabella, and fundraising targeted efforts through a Grand Raffle, Silent and Teacup Auctions. The theme for the event is "Bridging Communities Through Hope," and will be emceed by Andrew Stockey from Channel 4 Action News. Proceeds from the event will go directly to Hosanna House.
