When and Where: Wednesday at the Fairmont, Downtown.

Why: Forbes is the oldest nonprofit hospice and palliative care program in the Pittsburgh region, according to Keri Harmicar, community relations manager. This anniversary celebration honored founder Rose Ferraro, 94. An award has been established in her name to give to one of Forbes first volunteers, Jean Robinson, who has been volunteering for 35 years.

Fun tidbit: Interior designer Jonathan Rondinelli (wearing a #SEENBowtie ... check out his picture online) designed the In Patient Unit Family Room (for free!) at Forbes Hospice after meeting Ms. Harmicar. "It was such a no-brainer. How could you say no after learning about this organization? Plus, Keri's charisma pulls everyone in who knows her!"

#SEEN among the roughly 200 guests: David Seman, Braden Barker, Charles Christen, David Bennett, Kate Colligan, Marc Giosi, Nick Stupakis, Eileen French, Carl Macino, Charlene Campbell, Amy Scanlon, Bob Strauss and Peter Kope.
