Reservations now being accepted for annual award ceremony, dinner


Make plans now to attend our annual community awards dinner on Oct. 17 at the award-winning Sunset Room, along Route 48 in Elizabeth Township.

We will be honoring state Rep. Austin Davis with our Sen. H. John Heinz III Award for Community Service and Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank with our Regional Partnership Award.

In addition, our local community development partners will honor volunteers from their municipalities.

Veteran Pittsburgh radio personality Sean McDowell will be our master of ceremonies for the evening. McDowell, who recently retired from WDVE-FM, has deep roots in the Mon Valley. He started his radio career in Braddock and his father, the late TV newscaster Al McDowell, was born in Clairton.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and dinner will be served at 7. Tickets are $35 and include dinner, soft drinks and dessert, and a cash bar will be available.

Please RSVP by Oct. 4. Tickets may be purchased by sending a check to Mon Valley Initiative, 305 E. Eighth Ave., Homestead, PA 15120, or visiting our website.

For more information, email Grant Cole, community outreach specialist, or call 412-464-4000, extension 4024.
