Mimosas and musicals were on the menu when the Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera Guild gathered for lunch on Aug. 6 at LeMont restaurant on Mt. Washington.

The Guild, now in its 59th year, honored this year's 11 recipients of the Constance T. Rockwell, Dolores and Walter Bold and the Charity Randall Foundation Scholarship.

Neal Bechman, Ryan Borgo, Areo Keller, Kyley Klass, Sarah Krempasky, Hannah Lane, Amy Russell, Jenna Scannelli, Annastassia Stewart, Zane Travis and Michael Zak each received $4,000 scholarships to pursue their voice, drama or dance education at the college of their choice.

“They are kids today, but we are going to see their names in lights,” said Patti Matty, chairwoman of the Guild's board. “They have such a passion. We have to encourage them to pursue these careers.”

Also honored at the luncheon were the three-generation family team of Moira Davison, her son George Davison and her granddaughter Morgan Davison, who co-chaired the 59th annual Pittsburgh CLO Guild Ball on June 7 in the Westin Convention Center Hotel ballroom, Downtown.
