HIGHLIGHTS: Hosted by Pittsburgh Steeler Arthur Moats and his wife, Shonda, along with former Steeler Alan Faneca and his wife, Julie, the event kicked off with a display of Pittsburgh pride. During a meet-and-greet autograph session, attendees were given the opportunity to have footballs signed by some of their favorite current and former Steelers. Guests enjoyed signature pink cocktails and delicious seafood as they placed bids on live and silent auctions that featured fabulous prizes, including a $4,000 diamond necklace donated by Trinity Jewelers! Topping off the evening was a live performance by Nick Marzock, who traveled all the way from Los Angeles to delight the audience with his unique blend of soul and rock

“Bid for Hope has raised more than $2 million since its inception. All the funds stay in Western Pennsylvania, and we support programs that are not anywhere else in the country.” — Diana Napper, founder of Glimmer of Hope
