A couple of weeks ago I attended the 50 Finest Casino for a Cure Event. This event was held by Steve Persing, Andrea Bosco and Sarah Demarco. The event was a charity / fundraiser for Cystic Fibrosis. The 3 people mentioned above are part of this years 50 Finest. Each year the Western Pennsylvania chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation selects 50 of the most eligible men and women for their activity in the community and success in their careers. 50 Finest events are held throughout the year to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Steve is a good friend of mine so naturally I would come out and support him at this event. The event was held at the ‘Smart House’ in Mt. Washington, which has to be one of the coolest houses anywhere in Pittsburgh. It is extremely modern and has a unique design, something you don’t find in Pittsburgh. The best part of the house is the view, you can see all of Pittsburgh from the backyard or any of the balconies.
The entire back-side of the house is glass, which makes for a pretty cool atmosphere. If you want to see more photos of the event make sure you check out WPXI’s photo gallery of the event.
The event was setup like a casino so you were able to gamble. I played mostly blackjack, our dealer was actually pretty funny, which made for a good time. You could not win real money, but the money you did win went towards tickets for the grab bags that they had downstairs. The party was also sponsored by Clique Vodka and I.C. Light so there were plenty of drinks to go around.
