“This is a very relaxed event for us ... no pressure!” jested Partners For Quality director Mary Mitchell (with Bill) as she watched the LeMont fill up with 125 guests for PFQ's “Celebrate the Season” Holiday Party.

The list of who's who on hand included Jim and Diane Esposito, Dr. Neal and Amy Fanelli, Ron and Kathi Lenart, Joe and Sue Mandarino, Joe and Nancy Murray, Jim and Carol Plake, Chuck Snyder and Carol Shriber, Marty Sporrer and Bobbi Lasto, as well as CEO Don DiMichele.

Before dinner, cocktail hour heard a few to-be-announced surprises surrounding PFQ's annual Pittsburgh Fashion Story runway show, which will celebrate a 10-year anniversary in 2013.

“I haven't walked in it yet ... but maybe for the 10-year, I will,” joked John Lamberson, with his wife, Kate.

PFQ provides services to adults with intellectual disabilities and to children with behavioral health challenges.
