Oakmont hosts Greater Pittsburgh's Season of Giving Gala

| Sunday, Dec. 6, 2009

You know it's a fabulous party when the only reason the guests finally leave the dance floor is because the band has put their instruments down for the night.

On Saturday, more than 300 swelegants braved a cold December evening and a hot mess of traffic congestion comprised of disappointed Pitt fans (also the evening's conversational topic du jour) to make their way out to the Oakmont Country Club for the YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh's Season of Giving Gala.

"We're like Santa Claus and Scrooge. ... I'm Scrooge!" mused prez Eric Mann (with Branita ) as he posed for a photo with honoree Dan Grealish (with Patty ), chairman of Henderson Brothers Inc. and longtime Y supporter.

Bah, humbug! Considering the $200K that was raised, we find that hard to believe.

Dancing the night away were board chair Dave and Martha Martin; Bill Spencer; Lou Astorino and Mary Milan; Jeff and Debbie Kimball; Pat and Alan Siger; Steve and Stephanie Massaro; Steve and Peggy Snavely; David and Katy Caliguiri; Bob and Denise Donahoe; Paul and Melissa Meinert; Tom Grealish ; and Tim and Amy Grealish .

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.
