CELEBRATION! took place at Pittsburgh Opera in the Strip District. All attendees were honored for their commitment to the Federation’s Community Campaign and, in turn, helped to recognize the Halpern family, recipients of the 2018 PNC Community Builders Award. The award recognizes Federation leaders whose volunteer efforts have resulted in a stronger, more vibrant Greater Pittsburgh community.
