Party at the Pier
Kathleen Seibert, Jessica Seibert
Riverlife celebrated its 15th anniversary in style at its annual Party at the Pier. The “Gold & Glam”-themed bash, presented by PNC, brought a sold-out crowd of 750 guests in their finest gilded attire. Guests took a sunset walk along the North Shore to the riverfront Rivers Casino amphitheater, where Bill Chisnell Productions set a shimmering scene. The casino’s culinary team whipped up gold-colored cocktails, Champagne, and a menu of locally sourced dishes for the occasion. When guests needed a breather from dancing to the Elite Showband, they were invited to hop on the Gateway Clipper for 20-minute, romantic cruises. “Pittsburgh is experiencing a golden age of riverfront development,” says Riverlife President & CEO Lisa Schroeder. “And, the best is still yet to come.” A golden age, indeed! More than $200,000 was raised to benefit Riverlife and its efforts to reclaim, restore, and promote Pittsburgh’s riverfronts. Schroeder explains, “We’re honored and humbled that so many people came to celebrate 15 years of Riverlife’s work to transform Pittsburgh’s riverfronts into the clean, green waterfronts everyone enjoys today.” — A.B. + I.M.
