“It's amazing how many people support our efforts in the community,” said Adagio Health prez Richard Baird Jr. during the Hot Pink Pittsburgh party.

Held Sept. 27 at the August Wilson Center, the event had the likes of honorary chair and legendary jazz guitarist Joe Negri (with Joni), co-chairs Sharon and David Watkins, Linda Mitchell, Janice and Ernie Meade, and Tempo Awardees Karen Wolk Feinstein, Dr. Morris Turner and Tina Thomson (accepting on behalf of Giant Eagle) making the rounds.

“It isn't about us. ... It's about the work and assistance to women,” said Turner, recognized along with the others for their dedication to improving the health and well-being of women and their families in Western Pennsylvania.

Embracing the evening of jazz, the event also featured vocalist Dane Vannatter and a quartet made up of Alton Merrell, Paul Thompson, James Johnston III and Mike Tomaro, as well as vocalist Maureen Budway and REED DANCE.
