The Duquesne Club had its hands full on Thursday evening when the good ol' boys rolled into the billiards room for the annual Cummerbund Society Pool Tournament, soon to be celebrating its 25th year of raising money for neonatal research at Magee Women's Hospital.

After making sure their best assets were on display for the group photo, members were ready to rack up a new game with the likes of founding fathers Mac McIlrath, Jim Smith and Frank "Rusty" Marmion; Dr. Gary Silverman, Dr. Jon Watchko, Dennis McClelland (back in Pittsburgh after a stint in the Mid-West), Tom Duddy, David Galardini (also this year's champion), and royal barker Bob Addelman Jr. Meanwhile, no big surprise that the dress code ensured a sea of tuxes, although most of the black ties were left at home in favor of something a little less expected.

The festivities were dedicated in memory of Paul Matty, a longtime member who passed away last year.
