The Children’s Home of Pittsburgh & Lemieux Family Center celebrated its 17th annual signature fundraising event, Shake Your Booties, on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at Heinz Field. Over 500 guests attended the event including special VIP guests Jerome & Trameka Bettis and Rick Sebak! Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, Shake Your Booties 2018 was our most successful gala to date, raising over $300,000 for the children and families we serve!!!!

This year’s Shake Your Booties 125th Birthday Party presented guests with a birthday party- themed gala to celebrate the 125th anniversary of The Children’s Home! Guests enjoyed gourmet food stations, delicious drinks, music from Jason Kendall Productions,  a silent auction, a live auction, a raffle, and a program that highlighted Jonathan’s Story, the story of an amazing 4 year old former patient of the Pediatric Specialty Hospital.
