Last night my wife and I went to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation‘s 50 Finest Pittsburghers. Basically they are singles that are making a name for themselves in their careers and they raise money for CFF through this event by getting sponsors. It was a nice evening with bread from Mancini’s, cheesecake from Bucca di Beppo, and pasta and roast beef from the Omni William Penn (the gala was held in the seventeenth floor ballroom).
One of my colleagues, Viviana Altieri, was honored as one of the 50 finest this year. Apparently, the crowd was estimated at around 700 plus people. One of the people that attended was Justine Ezarik of iJustine and tastyblogsnack fame!
Some pics (sorry for the qulaity – I used my Treo):

A proud Viviana!
Some suggestions for next year:
1.) Larger venue
2.) Tables for people to eat at
3.) A better sound system.
