Sally Wiggin will be among the special guests at the March 23 “Shake Your Booties” event, held by the Children’s Home of Pittsburgh and Lemieux Family Center.

The Children’s Home of Pittsburgh and Lemieux Family Center will hold its 18th annual signature gala, “Shake Your Booties,” on March 23 at the UPMC Club in Heinz Field.

Celebrants Sally Wiggin, nine-year NFL veteran and former Pittsburgh Steeler Arthur Moats and WQED’s Rick Sebak will help highlight special guests Allie and her family, according to a release.

Allie attends Child’s Way daycare for medically fragile children within The Children’s Home. Her family enrolled Allie after she suffered brain damage and seizures and required a daycare providing both medical and educational support, the release says.

Event co-chairs Clair McGee and Steph Churchel will host an evening of live music by Jason Kendall Productions, an open bar, games, auctions, dinner and dancing.

All event proceeds directly support programs of The Children’s Home: adoption, Child’s Way and the pediatric specialty hospital.

TribLIVE commenting policy

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.
