The event celebrated five exemplary individuals for their commitment to excellence with Dimensions in Performance Awards.

Gala 31 began with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres at 6 p.m., followed by dinner at 7 p.m. Gala 31 came to a close with music and dancing from one of Pittsburgh's finest variety bands, Finesse, a mock casino and photo booths. To view photos from Gala 31, visit https://mvhgala31.shutterfly.com/.
