Event salutes supporters of Every Child Inc.

Sunday, June 30, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

A luncheon at LeMont on June 26 served to put the spotlight on supporters of Every Child Inc., which provides numerous support and wellness programs for area birth, foster and adoptive families.

“This afternoon to Every Child allows us the opportunity to celebrate community and partnerships. In order to be a successful organization, you have to collaborate,” said executive director Jesse McLean.

Children's Home of Pittsburgh & Lemieux Family Center, Chartwell Pennsylvania, Covenant Church of Pittsburgh Young Adult Ministry and the Greater Pittsburgh Nonprofit Partnership were among this year's class of honorees.

Also lauded with the Family Ever After Award was Alexis Altieri, one of EC's foster parents.

“It's amazing, really … the whole foster thing. A lot of people really deserve the credit, because there's so many needy children,” offered her father, Ron Tucke.
