Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force benefit raises $150,000



There couldn’t have been a better way to spend Thursday evening than at the 28th annual Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force benefit at the Twentieth Century Club in Oakland.

Drinks were flowing for more than 400 guests who enjoyed casino-style games while Johnny Rodgers performed cabaret-style hits in the Art Deco-style venue. Jeremy Shapira, representing Giant Eagle, was the recipient of the Kerry Stoner Award. Co-chairs David Bush and Tim McVay were the life of this exuberant party, which raised roughly $150,000 for the agency that is dedicated to supporting and empowering people living with HIV/AIDS.

"This is such a great community of people. Every year I'm always so excited to come out to this event to mingle with old friends as well as meet new ones," said Chuck Christen, PATF's executive director.
