The Place: More than 200 guests came out to honor Giant Eagle CEO Laura Karet at the Heinz Field East Club Lounge, North Shore. Guests were treated to Three Rivers Young Peoples Orchestras group, Cobalt Quartet, which performed Mozart's "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik."

The Purpose: "Giant Eagle is one of the few employers in our region willing to train individuals with disabilities. Their commitment is unparalleled," said Erika Arbogast, president of The Blind & Vision Rehabilitation Services of Pittsburgh.

The Person: "What's wonderful about BVRS is the work that they do to make lives better, and Giant Eagle believes that everyone has value and something to offer," Ms. Karet said. Special guest speaker and Giant Eagle employee Sherri Rodgers added, "I am completely blind and have hearing loss, but I can do a lot of things. I know my limitations, but when given a chance to succeed, I do."

#SEEN: Honorary chairs Sy Holzer and Dan Onorato, Jim Roddey, Lindsey Nova, Karen Priore, Desiree Polite, Dr. Ellen Mitchell, Zack Butovich and Simona Graur.
