    Andrew Stockey accepts Lithograph from PVGP chairman Dan Taylor

    Andrew Stockey made time after anchoring the WTAE 6:00 News to stop by and say hello. Guy Costa, Chief Operation Officer for the City of Pittsburgh, accepted a plaque for the amazing 33 year partnership between our organizations. John Putzier accepted a framed poster as the Presenting Sponsor and 50 other sponsors, partners and car clubs were recognized with plaques. Naturally we all raised our mugs of Hofbräuhaus Bier in a toast!

    Traditionally this is the time of year when the final check is presented to our charities but with the Greater Pittsburgh Automobile Dealers Foundation as our Presenting Sponsor that special moment takes place at the Red Carpet Premiere event that opens the Pittsburgh Auto Show at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center on Thursday February 11. Pleae join us as we hope to break the record of $360,000 that was set last year. Get your details and tickets here.
