Women's Board selects Hosanna House as luncheon beneficiary
Money raised at the luncheon will support Hosanna House in its focus to increase standardized test scores through exposure to STEM programs, Women’s Board member Laura Dawson said.
Specifically, the money will support instruction in its makerspace classroom, aviation lab and outdoor learning space.
Hosanna House provides services to more than 40,000 people a year through meals, summer camps and fitness classes.
Themed “Bridging Communities through Hope,” the luncheon will be Jan. 25, at the Fox Chapel Golf Club. Doors open at 10 a.m.; tickets cost $75.
The Women’s Board is in its 28th year of hosting the event, with the proceeds always funneled to a group supporting women and children.
This year’s lunch will feature a cooking demonstration by John Berquist from Out of the Fire Cafe, as well as an informal fashion show from Oakmont’s Carabella. There also will be silent auctions and a grand raffle.
Dawson said the group has donated more than $740,000 to organizations over the years. Past recipients have included Sharpsburg Community Library and Operation Backpack.
Last year, the event brought in a record-breaking $80,000 for the Fox Chapel-based Pediatric Palliative Care Coalition.
