The Rotary Club of Pittsburgh salutes the late Chuck Tanner with appreciative thanks for years of kindness, generosity and goodwill.

Over the past four years, Tanner supported the club as the namesake of the fundraiser The Pittsburgh Rotary Chuck Tanner MLB Manager of the Year Award. At this banquet, a Major League Baseball manager received an award in Tanner's name for good accomplished on the field, as well as for how his management style emulated Tanner's kind, direct leadership style.

To date, the annual event has raised more than $150,000 for Pittsburgh Rotary Foundation operations and community outreach.

We look forward to continuing to honor Tanner's memory in the coming years with the foundation banquet.

Sadly, we say: "Godspeed, our dear friend. Rest in peace. Thank you for your kindness toward the community work accomplished by our Pittsburgh Rotary Club. We hold your memory fondly in our hearts; you will always be our famed hero. May God continue to bless your family during this difficult time."
