Pittsburgh Promenade A Success

Blog Post

Achieva’s annual Pittsburgh Promenade on Saturday, March 25th, commemorated the 25th anniversary of Achieva Family Trust and recognized Richard and Mary Beth McQuillis, siblings who work for Achieva and also received a grant from the Family Trust Charitable Residual Program.

“Achieva’s annual Pittsburgh Promenade significantly elevates and funds Achieva’s mission and vision, ensuring ongoing advocacy and support for people with disabilities to lead lives of personal significance,” said Steve Suroviec, Achieva President and CEO.

The event, with its basket raffles, a robust auction, and individual donations, raised approximately $180,000 in support of Achieva’s charitable mission. Three lucky winners received the cash raffle prizes- Don Malecki, John Lemmex, and Mark Brown (a special thanks goes to Mark, the winner of the largest cash prize, for generously returning a significant portion of his winnings to Achieva!).

Thank you to our event sponsors, guests, and friends who supported the Pittsburgh Promenade!
