On Nov. 21, Greta and Art Rooney II, owner of the Steelers, were awarded the Jewish National Fund’s 28th Tree of Life Award at a reception and dinner at the Omni William Penn Hotel.

Said former Steeler great and longtime Rooney family friend Franco Harris: “Art and Greta are such wonderful, beautiful people and they do get involved, they do give back. That’s really been a trademark of the Rooney Family.”
