Oakmont roadway becomes fashion runway
If the white tents and arrival of 350 people to the streets of Oakmont on Aug. 22 weren't enough to pique the curiosity of the locals, the sudden presence of a few willowy models guaranteed that the gawking had begun.
With the transformation of Allegheny River Boulevard into a runway complete, Carabella's ninth annual Alzheimer's Association Benefit fashion show easily lured the likes of prexy Gail Roddie-Hamlin, Kiya Tomlin, Courtney Murray, Adrienne Lear, Angela Grimm, Mary Jo Crowe, Jody and Jimmy Schwartz, and Kathy Aiken outside for cocktails and closet enhancers. The evening also included strolling magic with Lee Terbosic, whose tricks included — what else? Money burning a hole in his wallet.
Created in honor of her mother, the event remains near and dear for Carabella owner Carol Kinkela.
“We have a goal of $100K. ... I'm not going to stop before we get it,” she said.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com 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.
