'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

The Butler County Symphony Orchestra announced Friday it will be among the nonprofit organizations from Allegheny, Westmoreland and Butler counties to benefit from the 2014 Day of Giving on May 6.

The event is part of Give Local America, the national day for community foundations to generate money for nonprofits by providing a match to what is given by individual donors.

“We are fortunate to live in an area where there is a strong emphasis in the arts,” Ed Wadding, president, Butler County Symphony Association, said in a statement.

“Like most arts organizations, our ticket prices only cover about 30 percent of our expenses. We are so thankful to those individuals, businesses and corporations who have shown their financial support for more than 65 years so that we can continue to share our music.”

The Day of Giving will take place May 6, from 6 a.m. until midnight. Organizations receiving donations will receive a pro-rated portion from the match pool established by the event's local sponsor, The Pittsburgh Foundation. The match will be capped at $1,000 per donor transaction per organization, according to the foundation.

Donations need to be made through using a Visa or Mastercard and need to be at least $25.
