Dianna and Catherine Loevner, Spring Hat Luncheon - Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, Schenley Park, Oakland. May 6, 2017. This year’s event is May 4 at Allegheny Commons Park on Pittsburgh’s North Side.

Put a topper on it.

The 21st annual PNC Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy Spring Hat Luncheon is from 11:15 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 4. It’s the first time the stylish event will be held at Allegheny Commons Park on Pittsburgh’s North Side.

The soiree attracts 700 guests, according to a news release. Proceeds benefit Pittsburgh park system.

The luncheon is an opportunity for guests to feature their headwear style. You will see everything from designer hats to homemade headpieces.

Guests will be treated to champagne and cocktails, followed by a sit-down luncheon catered by the Duquesne Club.

This is the first year the event is not held at one of the City’s five regional parks.

The event coincides with the Kentucky Derby. It was founded in 1999 and has raised $8.5 million in support of Pittsburgh’s park system, according to a press release. It helps the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy support much-need projects and programming in city parks. Currently, there are 165 parks in the city of Pittsburgh.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
