On Sat., March 20, more than 350 guests gathered at Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse on the North Shore to celebrate the ninth annual Shake Your Booties, an event to raise money for The Children’s Home and Lemieux Center (TCHLC). Champagne and appetizers flowed while guests enjoyed music and song by New York City jazz vocalist Allan Harris and Pittsburgh native and jazz singer Etta Cox. Other noteworthy highlights included a silent and live auction led by former Chief Executive of Allegheny County Jim Roddey. The event raised $210,000 for programs benefiting the TCHLC.
