Why should you and your staff, even entry level staff, attend?

“One of the really interesting factors that emerged from that research… is the relationship between training and development and success in major gifts. And for every incremental form of training and development that small organizations get involved with, that seems to be correlated with around a $37,000 increase in the amounts that people are willing to raise.”

Please join Honorary Event Chairs Janine and Bob Fragasso at our seventh annual signature fundraising event, Picture This!, presented by UPMC Health Plan. We will honor nonprofit community leader, Kate Dewey, as our first Picture This! Advocate for Youth awardee.
WTAE’s Andrew Stockey will guide guests through the events of the evening, including interactive activities, smooth jazz music, a something for everyone mobile silent auction, our foster youth art exhibit, and delicious small bites and cocktails.
As part of the event, Ward Home foster youth are busy participating in glass art, photography, and jewelry making classes, and will have their work on display. Their artwork will be on sale that evening, with proceeds going to their personal savings accounts. Be the first to purchase their artwork!
