In 2013, 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 Thursday, November 1, 2018

Pittsburgh Golf Club
5280 Northumberland St
Squirrel Hill, PA 15217

$100 / Valet Parking available

Ticket holders will enjoy a cocktail hour followed by a delicious catered buffet supper, with live music throughout the evening. In lieu of speeches, a short, professionally produced film will honor our treasures. Reserve your tickets here.
