Throughout the year, special events help McGuire Memorial raise funds that continue to enrich and broaden the personalized educational and care needs for every individual we serve – students at The School at McGuire Memorial; adults at our Employment Option Center; children and adults in residence on-site in McGuire’s Intermediate Care Facility; or adults living in one of McGuire Memorial's Community Homes.
Evening of Gratitude (11/23/2014)
The annual event at LeMont is tentatively scheduled for Sunday, November 23, 2014 beginning at 6:00 PM at the LeMont Restaurant, Grandview Avenue, Mt. Washington. This event is an integral part of our annual Special Auction for Special People as it serves as a feeder in providing a large amount of silent auction items.
The Pittsburgh Symphony Brass Ensemble (12/7/2014)
The second year for this event will take place on Sunday, December 7, 2014, at 7:00 PM at St. James Church, Sewickley. The Holidays will be in full swing and nothing will help your Holiday spirit more than listening to the world renowned music of the Pittsburgh Symphony Brass Ensemble. All proceeds will benefit McGuire Memorial. This special evening is underwritten by and through the generosity of Sam and Judy Spanos. A reception following the performance will be underwritten by Mr. and Mrs. Clay Saftner.
