The Children’s Home of Pittsburgh & Lemieux Family Center celebrated its 16th annual signature fundraising event, Shake Your Booties, on Saturday, March 25, 2017 at Stage AE. Over 400 guests attended the event, raising more than $200,000!

This year’s Shake Your Booties…Down Bourbon Street presented guests with a Mardi Gras-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 to New Orleans tunes performed by Pittsburgh’s very own zydeco band, John Gresh’s Gris-Gris

Honorary Co-Chairs, Brooks and Jen Broadhurst, and Event Chairs, Luke Sossi and Steven P. Smith, helped make the evening unforgettable. The Smolinski family, whose daughter attended Child’s Way, 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.
