IMPACT 2014, Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh’s annual Fundraising Event, brought 320 supporters from all over our region to the Senator John Heinz History Museum on October 17, 2014. Guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’ouvres before a very funny Lee Terbosic entertained folks with magic and comedy, the C Street Brass provided great music, and a live auction was held – the proceeds of which all went to support the work of Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh. A big thank you to all who made this fundraiser a successful event — especially Master Builders’ Association, the Presenting Sponsor. We thank all of our sponsors and those who attended for helping us raise over $26,000 for the emergency repair program, Operation Urgent Care, of Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh.
The food was delicious and the spirit of the evening and super energy was provided by Wendy Bell, WTAE news anchor, who graciously emceed the event. Mascaro Construction Company was honored with the Brass Hammer Award given in recognition of their many years of dedicated and generous support of our mission and work. Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh was also honored to award Rudy Benedetti the first Legacy Award for his tireless devotion and dedication in leading our organization forward in the community serving homeowners in need. IMPACT 2014 celebrated these award winners but more so the work together that will bring free home repairs to over 190 needy homeowners this year. Thanks very much to everyone involved!
