*****Our hearts go out to the victims and families of the recent senseless tragedy at Tree of Life synagogue. We send deep condolences to the families of the deceased and sincere wishes of healing and quick recovery to those injured. To allow our community to grieve and mourn those taken too soon from us, we have postponed the 2018 Treasure Dinner. We believe the community’s need to gather and affirm that which makes our neighborhood unique and special must continue. We are proud of the 2018 awardees and hope you will join us and celebrate Squirrel Hill at the new date of Tuesday, November 20th *****

In 2010, the Squirrel Hill Urban Coalition began a new tradition, honoring its special community Treasures: the people and places that make Squirrel Hill a great place to live, work and do business. Since then, 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 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.

This year’s Squirrel Hill Treasures Dinner will be held on

6pm, Thursday, November 1, 2018 (new date November 20, 2018)

Pittsburgh Golf Club
5280 Northumberland St
Squirrel Hill, PA 15217

Ticket holders will enjoy a cocktail hour followed by a delicious catered buffet supper, with live music throughout the evening. To help capture the celebratory moment, DigiBooths will be on hand to snap some pics with a customized gif photo booth! In lieu of speeches, a short, professionally-produced film will honor our treasures.   Reserve your tickets here
