It seemed fair that the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, which puts others center stage, found itself basking in the spotlight for a change.

That was the order of business on March 21 at the Rivers Club in Oxford Centre, where Scott Lammie, Selma and Leon Sherman, Catherine Loevner, Michael Brunner, Bob McKeown, Jerry Morosco, Don Carter, and John and Dotti Bechtol were among those ready to toast the organization with the 2013 Downtown Experience Award.

“I've got 45 minutes worth of remarks,” said prez Kevin McMahon, who accepted on behalf of the Cultural Trust. “You know I'm kidding, right?”

The award, which recognizes groups and individuals who have made significant contributions to the growth and vitality of our city, was put into motion by Bob Fragasso (with Janine) about six years ago.

“Of course, we're ecstatic. It's wonderful that we get so much support from the community,” McMahon said.
