Allegheny Health Network presented its ninth annual Celebrate and Share: Women of Achievement Awards to kick off Women's History Month on Thursday. The event, which supported Cribs for Kids, honored 24 inspiring women in the city, including entrepreneurs, social workers, numerologists, financial advisers and civil rights advocates.

"We are recognizing women of character, courage and commitment," said event co-founder JoAnn Forrester. About 350 guests came to the Omni William Penn Hotel for the event hosted by Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala Jr. and his wife Mary (who was unable to attend). Cribs for Kids founder Judy Bannon, who has taken this grassroots organization to a national level, said, "This could never have happened anywhere but Pittsburgh." More than 22,000 cribs have been distributed to low-income families in Allegheny County, and 450 Cribs for Kids partners across the nation are helping more than 200,000 babies sleep safely.

Among the honorees were Jane Grebenc, president of First Commonwealth Bank, Darieth Chisolm with It Works Global, Debbie Flaherty, president of Day Automotive, and Jodie B. Moore, president and co-founder of The Neighborhood Academy.
