More than 390 guests, including Elsie Hillman, Wendell Freeland, and the Rev. Dr. Harold Lewis, gathered to honor esteemed colleagues and support programs and services of the Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh. Held at the Westin Convention Center Hotel, the gala featured a silent auction of Steelers tickets, original works of art, gift certificates to restaurants, museums, and shows, among many other treasured items. “Each year, we are humbled by the quality of the Ronald H. Brown Leadership honorees, and this year — with Doris Carson Williams, Dr. Jerry Cohon, and Tim Stevens — was indeed humbling,” says Esther L. Bush, president and CEO. “We were also overwhelmed by the generous and energetic support from the corporate community, bringing this year’s gala fundraising total to more than $400,000. We are so appreciative.”
