save the date: may 2, 2020

The Spring Hat Luncheon features fashionable and creative attire, elegant headwear, and beautiful settings. Guests are treated to a chic champagne and cocktail reception, followed by a scrumptious sit-down luncheon featuring sophisticated entertainment in Pittsburgh's gorgeous parks.
