The Cause: The Art Rooney Award Dinner & Auction was held on Thursday at the Westin Convention Center Hotel, Downtown. The honorees were Clint Hurdle, Kim Tillotson Fleming, Joe Walton, and KDKA's Dave Crawley. The event raised more than $150,000 for the Catholic Youth Association of Pittsburgh.

Proudest Moment: "Twenty-six years ago, I started out as a young news anchor in Madison, Wis. Coming to Pittsburgh was a big change," said honoree Dave Crawley with a smile. "Winning the Bill Burns Award, and to be considered among so many greats...it's so humbling. This has blown me away."

Seen: Dave Malone and the Rev. Paul Taylor sharing a laugh before the banquet; Frank Coonelly, president of the Pittsburgh Pirates, posing for pictures among roughly 550 guests; Pittsburgh Steelers President, Art Rooney II, presented the awards while Michael Bartley of WQED emceed the event.
