Kudos for Joe Gordon
I would like to give my personal congratulations to Joe Gordon who was recently named to the Awards of Excellence by the Pro Football Hall of Fame for his outstanding contributions to the sport for over 30 years (“Steelers PR maven Joe Gordon honored by Pro Football Hall
of Fame,” June 3). I would like to commend and give Joe additional kudos for his tireless work in coordinating the Steelers Alumni Charity Golf Classic which marks its 25th year on July 18 under Joe’s leadership. Joe’s unending effort of chairing this event has raised millions of dollars for one of our our community’s premiere charities, Blind and Vision Rehabilitation Services, now located off the Boulevard of the Allies in the Upper Hill District. Joe’s untiring efforts and that of the late great Coach Chuck Noll have contributed greatly to the financial well-being of a local organization that helps so many visually impaired people lead fuller and more productive lives.
Thank you Joe for all you have and continue to do and for being one of Pittsburgh’s true Champions!
