SKAL Board Installation Dinner
Crowne Plaza Pittsburgh West – Green Tree hosted the SKAL Board Installation Dinner Tuesday night. Members enjoyed an evening of good conversation, premium drinks and full sit-down dinner service. Those in attendance were impressed by the exceptional service.
The Crowne Plaza is located just 3 miles from Downtown Pittsburgh with complimentary shuttle service to Pittsburgh. The hotel is newly renovated, full-service and includes 11,700 square feet of flexible meeting space across three ballrooms that can hold everything from board meetings to large corporate events and weddings.
Congratulations to Bob Paige in winning $103 from the 50/50 raffle - proceeds benefit the Joe Kane SKAL Scholarship fund. Last year the group granted over $10,000 worth of scholarships to 5 deserving students in the Greater Pittsburgh area. The entire hospitality and tourism community can support this cause by participating the annual Golf Outing – Monday, July 17th.
