She takes great pride in her work as director of this event and oversees all aspects of the program. This annual fundraiser and competition in which “celebrities” (who are sometimes individuals representing various businesses and organizations) perform a ballroom dance with a talented ballroom dance partner, compete against one another to win the coveted mirror ball trophy. This event benefits many charitable organizations in Pittsburgh and surrounding areas and raises thousands of dollars each year.
