'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

ALL THAT GLITTERS

Gift of Life chairs Ginny and Phil Petraglia were among the 400 joining the National Kidney Foundation for an “All That Glitters is Gold” evening March 2. Held at the Circuit Center, the event also lauded John Heher, Dr. Rita McGill and Zinna Scott for their contributions to the cause.

WESLEY SPECTRUM

On the anniversary of Dr. Seuss' birthday, Wesley Spectrum promised an evening of “joyful fun” for its 13th annual Gala held on March 2. Guests, including board member Diane Hallett and her husband, Bill, arrived at the Westin to encourage Wesley's mission of providing a strong transformational support system for families and individuals with autism and behaviorial health issues.

UPMC's CHILDREN'S BALL

En masse they arrived, an army of 700 ready to Party Like a Rock Star during a Saturday date night spent with the miniatures for UPMC's Children's Ball. Held March 2 at the Carnegie Science Center, the annual event benefited the UPMC Health for Life Summer Camp at Braddock.

ST. ALEXIS SCHOOL GALA

On March 2, St. Alexis School in Wexford held its 11th annual Gala at the Omni William Penn hotel. More than 300 guests attended the fundraiser, which supports school improvements. Afterward, an 8-week-old cocker spaniel went home with Giao and David Carrico, parents of Maia, a first-grader at St. Alexis School, and Rowan, a kindergartener.

AIDS TASK FORCE

The Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force did its part to generate some buzz ahead of its annual gala by hosting a VIP reception at the Mansions on Fifth on Feb. 27. Movers and shakers, including Kerry Stoner awardees Tony and Linda Bucci, and entertainer Porsche, joined the ranks to raise a glass in preparation for the much-anticipated soiree that will take place March 20.
