Words From Lisa

“For the past 20 years, the annual Pittsburgh Blues Festival has supported our mission by inviting the community to a fun and entertaining event that also is our biggest single fundraiser.” 
“It’s three days of great music that also serves to call attention to the many friends and neighbors in our region who remain food insecure.”
“I hope everyone will consider joining us (be sure to check out the deal listed at the bottom of this issue) July 24 through July 26 and have a great time while supporting a great cause.”
– Lisa A. Scales, President & CEO
