The Salvation Army's trashiest event, the 11th Garbage Bag Gala at the Fairmont Pittsburgh Hotel Nov. 1 had nearly 200 guests dressing in plastic bags. The amount of creativity and effort resulted in some outstanding sartorial ensembles created by local boutiques, which were applauded during the fashion show portion of the evening. The event began with a VIP reception where guests mingled with philanthropist Margot Perot. Even the men got into this year's event, which was chaired by Pamela Abdalla, helping to gross nearly $40,000 for the cause.
