Doctors Throw Away Their Razors to Help Children in Need
One of our favorite events of the year is the No-Shave Movember Contest at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. This event was founded and is run by the doctors in the pediatric residency program at CHP. We are touched to annually be their charity of choice! They partner with Pennies because they, “See the impact of your grants to our patients on a daily basis.” This was an exceptionally exciting year as the first female Big Mustache On Campus was crowned, Jillian Mador, third year resident (and chief resident next year). And, yes, Jillian did knit that facial hair herself. A huge Pennies From Heaven thank you to all of the pediatric doctors, friends and family who raised more than $4,000 to help families in need!!!!
OH What a Night…
Blessed with perfect weather and even better supporters, the Frye Barn was once again turned into a small miracle factory as we raised more than $83,000.00 to help sick children have their parents at their bedside while admitted to the hospital. There are far too many folks to thank for helping to truly make this the charity event of the year. We do, however, have to give another special thank you to Kathy & Bob Martin who personally solicit and collect 90% of the items seen in the Chinese auction baskets, as well as the Tito’s, Deep Eddy’s, Ole Smokey, Samuel Adams, and Fireball. We could never do this event without them!! To see pictures of the event, visit Gary Yon Photography (thanks Gary!) at http://garyyon.zenfolio.com/pennies2017.
Please remember to support our other involved friends: Root 19, Applebees, Post Office Deli Catering, Monte Cellos, Storms, Remo’s Catering, Cop-Out Pierogies, Smokin Dicks, Crystal Limousine, Hal’s Bar, and Richard Bazzi Ford. Remember our golf outing is always the Tuesday after Memorial Day and the inaugural Pennies Peddle Bicycle event is June 10, 2018. We SINCERELY thank you for your support!!
