The Children’s Home of Pittsburgh & Lemieux Family Center celebrated its 15th annual signature fundraising event, Shake Your Booties, on Saturday, April 2, 2016, at Stage AE. Over 400 guests attended the event, raising more than $200,000!
This year’s Shake Your Booties presented guests with a far-out disco-themed evening featuring an aerial silk performance by Iron City Aerial, food and cocktails, auction and raffle opportunities, and beautiful design by Tim Komen of TK Event Studio. Guests danced the night away to groovy tunes performed by Pittsburgh’s very own disco band, Dancing Queen.
Honorary Co-Chairs, Ted and Lynda Lazzaro, and Event Chair and Board Member, Luke Sossi, helped make the evening unforgettable. Roger and Gina Kriger, whose son was in the Pediatric Specialty Hospital, spoke beautifully about the impact The Children’s Home had on their family. All proceeds raised from Shake Your Booties go directly to support the programs of The Children’s Home of Pittsburgh & Lemieux Family Center.
