13th Annual FontanaFest & 1st Annual Fun Run/Walk & FontanaFest
I want to thank everyone who attended the 13th annual FontanaFest on Saturday at Highmark Stadium, home of the Pittsburgh Riverhounds and especially everyone who participated in the 1st FontanaFest Fun Run/Walk. We had a terrific turnout and were able to raise funds to help defeat childhood cancer and support families.
Following the race attendees enjoyed the many fun family-friendly activities, games and information that was provided by all our participating organizations.
FontanaFest is a 501(c)3 and would not be possible without the support of our terrific sponsors. I want to give special thanks to the Pittsburgh Riverhounds for hosting us at Highmark Stadium and for the staff at Highmark Stadium for all your assistance and efforts in making FontanaFest such a success. Special thanks to Station Square and Forest City for providing free parking to our guests, and the I.B.E.W. Local 5 for their generous support! Without the following organizations, FontanaFest would not be possible:
Thank you to the students from Pittsburgh Musical Theatre who joined us again this year and entertained the crowd with another fantastic performance! I also want to thank the Pittsburgh Steelers, Pittsburgh Penguins, Pittsburgh Pirates and Pittsburgh Riverhounds for supporting FontanaFest by allowing Steely McBeam, Iceburgh, Pirate Parrot and AMO respectively, to spend some time with our guests.
