Fab 40

The New Pittsburgh Courier toasted area men and women during its Fab 40 awards reception on March 23. Held at the Fairmont Pittsburgh, Downtown, the annual event recognizes blacks who are making strides in their professional and personal lives while also being committed to giving back to others. K. Chase Patterson, president and chief executive officer of Corporate Diversity Associates, was the emcee for the evening.

New Traditions

Dr. Zoot ensured that the soundtrack for the evening matched the “Rhythm and Rouge” theme of the sixth annual Traditions Gala. The event was March 23 at the Pittsburgh Field Club in Fox Chapel and was hosted by the Allegheny Valley Hospital Trust with proceeds supporting the capital, operational and program needs of the Natrona Heights hospital.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
