Mall at Robinson Celebrates 10 Years! Defining a Decade

22 Oct

Today, The Mall at Robinson celebrated their 10-year anniversary!

It’s hard to believe that already 10 years have gone by since this fabulous mall opened its doors to the North Fayette/Airport West region of Pittsburgh.

Today, the Mall at Robinson held an event at the mall called “Defining a Decade” which benefitted the Susan G. Komen foundation for a Cure. Wish 99.7 was in attendance, as was Whirl Magazine, Health America, and more. Prizes were given out long with coupons from Turkey Hill and a chance to win a trip to Key West, FL or a $1,000 mall shopping spree.

The fun, pink-themed event was held from Noon-3pm and featured music, entertainment, dancing, great giveaways, children’s activities and a silent auction to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure Pittsburgh.

Happy Anniversary, Mall at Robinson….from yours truly, Glitzburgh!

True Blood Actor Joe Manganiello at Pittsburgh’s Savoy this SATURDAY!

8 Sep

How many of you ‘Burghers are ‘True Blood’ fans? (How could you NOT be, is a better question!) Join actor/resident hottie Joe Manganiello (who plays werewolf Alcide on the hit show) at SAVOY Restaurant & Lounge this SATURDAY September 10th, at 7pm.

Glitzburgh is thrilled that Joe is stopping by to try SAVOY’s (delish!) Award-Winning menu!

Manganiello – a Steelers fan –  hails from Pittsburgh. Last night, he was involved in an event with Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh — one time of many that he’s supported his hometown. He graduated from Mt. Lebanon High School and then went on to Carnegie Mellon University. While he’s most known at present for his critically-praised role as Alcide Herveaux on HBO’s ‘True Blood’ series, he also played Flash in the Spiderman movies, and had recurring TV roles on hit shows such as How I Met Your Mother and One Tree Hill.

So, swing by, have a Maniac Martini, and try Chef Kevin’s amazing appetizers! Hope to see you there. Check back Monday when we have all the scoop from the event!

ABC to film ‘Everyday Health’ at Pittsburgh Salon

30 Aug

ABC will be in town Thursday, September 1st, 2011 to film a new reality TV show entitled Everyday Health. They will film at a salon cut-a-thon that will aim to spread awareness of psoriasis and get the message across that this autoimmune condition is NOT contagious. Proceeds will benefit the National Psoraisis Foundation.

Newlywed, reality starlet, and entrepreneur Kim Kardashian was recently diagnosed with Psoriasis, bringing some more awareness to the condition; and pro golfer Phil Mickelson lives with psoriatic arthritis, a related condition.

If you wish to take part in the cut-a-thon (remember — you may end up on TV, so be mindful of whether or not that is something that you are comfortable with) call 412.471.1575.

Here is more information from the National Psoriasis Foundation regarding the event:

 

 

“Join ABC’s “Everyday Health” and get a free haircut!

People with psoriasis often face discrimination at hair salons because others fear their disease is contagious. Show these people that you can’t catch psoriasis.

Join ABC on Thursday, Sept. 1, for the filming of a new reality show, “Everyday Health,” at Verve Wellness for a special “cut-a-thon” fundraiser to benefit the National Psoriasis Foundation. Get a haircut between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. and you could be on national TV showing your support for the millions of Americans with psoriatic diseases.

Thanks to the generosity of ABC, anyone with psoriasis in the Pittsburgh area can get their hair cut for free during this event.

Call Verve Wellness at 412.471.1575 to make an appointment during Thursday’s cut-a-thon.”
