Media from Previous Treasure Dinners

Since 2010, the Squirrel Hill Urban Coalition has honored the special community “Treasures“: the people and places that make Squirrel Hill a great place to live, work and do business. The Squirrel Hill Treasure Dinner has become an annual celebration and fundraiser for the Squirrel Hill Urban Coalition. Each year we recognize and congratulate three – four individuals, businesses, and organizations that are integral parts to our Squirrel Hill community and one place in Squirrel Hill that has added historic significance to a community we call home.
