WHAT: Presented by UPMC and UPMC Health Plan, Rock Steelers Style is the team’s largest annual fundraiser.
WHERE: Stage AE
HIGHLIGHTS: Guests savored heavy hors d’ oeuvres and cocktails in the Style Lounge before the main event: the Rock Steelers Style fashion show! Pittsburgh Steelers and their family members strutted their stuff across the stage in fashions from Kiya Tomlin/Uptown Sweats, Surmesur, Little’s Shoes, Outerstuff, and more. A surprise keyboard duet performance by Steelers Arthur Moats and Marcus Tucker was a fan-favorite moment of the evening, along with Steeler Anthony Chickillo taking home the coveted Swag Award.
“The most rewarding part about chairing this event is seeing the monies raised for these two important charities — The Cancer Caring Center and The UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program.” – Greta Rooney
