Every year Shake Your Booties grows bigger and better, a testament to the appreciation and support the Children's Home of Pittsburgh & Lemieux Family Center has garnered in the community. Celebrating 120 years, the organization provides services that promote the health and well-being of infants and children. More than 400 guests turned out for the annual benefit Saturday, which included an extensive silent auction, dinner and music by In the Mood. Ranny Ferguson (with Jay) and Julie Kline (with Jeffrey) chaired the evening, which honored former Steeler Aaron Smith (who came with wife Jaimie and four of their five children). Welcoming guests were CEO Pam Schanwald (with Seth), board president Eric Boughner (with Betsy) and emcee Jeff Verszyla from KDKA-TV. On hand were Nancy Angus from the Mario Lemieux Foundation, Julie Hughes from Fifth Third Bank, Dr. Jerome Itzkoff and Barbara Zawadzki, Emily and Rich Goldberg, Judy Linaberg and Jean Horne.
