Follow-up and Photos from GLITZBURGH: Glamour Meets Giving ~ A Black and Gold Affair

1 Jun

The May 23rd “Glitzburgh Glamour Meets Giving” event held at FATE Lounge in the Strip District was not only a fun and fashionable affair – but also a success, raising almost $14,000 for the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.

The music was great, the drinks were flowing, and the fashions were fantastic. The crowd was the perfect mix of young and old, and the vibe was friendly, giving, and generous.

Everything was local – from the makeup worn by models (Pittsburgh-based “Obsessed” minerals –www.obsessedminerals.com) to the music (Danielle Barbe, Anthony Jardine) to the fashions on the runway (Sew Addicted, Shop 412, Decade Pittsburgh) and even the models (including Pittsburgh Steeler James Harrisonand Miss Pennsylvania Gina Cerilli.)

I was “live-tweeting” from the event, giving you the most current updates — and, yes, afterwards, I made sure to head home and watch the series finale of LOST, which was, naturally, DVRed and waiting for me that very evening!

See below for some fab photos from this awesome occasion!

23 May

Tonight is the first annual Glitzburgh Glamour Meets Giving Fundraiser Event benefitting the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.

The event will be held at the new FATE Lounge in the Strip District and will surely prove to be a “who’s who” of Pittsburgh. Local athletes, celebrities, and performers will take the stage at 8:30 for a fashion show, hosted by DJ Mike Ryan of 96.1 KISS fm, and featuring designs from the hottest local designers and boutiques including Sew Addicted, Shop.412 and Decade Pittsburgh.

Singer Danielle Barbe is expected to perform, Miss Pennsylvania Gina Cerilli and Miss Teen Pennsylvania Elena LaQuatra will be walking in the fashion show alongside some of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Gladys Magazine and Whirl Magazine will be in attendance, as well as appearances from Ashley Elmore from The Bachelor, Kellee Maize, Anthony Jardine, other local performers and celebrities, and more.

The desirable silent auction will include not only a LADY GAGA prize pack but also prizes from the Pittsburgh Steelers, Penguins, Pirates, the Las Velas restaurant, Serendipity, Friends of the Riverfront, and many others.

Guests are encouraged to enjoy the remainder of the evening at FATE following the runway show and silent auction winner announcements.

Proceeds from the evening benefit Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh which is consistently ranked among the best pedatric hospitals in the nation, and, even the world.

I’ll be live-tweeting from the event @Glitzburgh and will post a follow-up review of the evening in the coming days, so, stay tuned!
