FRICK PARK SATURDAY, MAY 6, 2023
In 2023, we’re tipping our hats to 25 years of progress in Pittsburgh’s parks.
Since the PNC Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy Spring Hat Luncheon was founded in 1999 by Ritchie Battle and Audrey Hillman Fisher, with support from Teresa Heinz, the event has provided more than $10.5 million in direct support of Pittsburgh’s magnificent park system. As the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy’s most vital fundraising event of the season, the Luncheon sets the stage for the amount of restoration and maintenance that can be accomplished in our parks each year.
This year, we are taking a moment to reflect and honor the incredible commitment of the co-chairs, vice chairs, patrons, and supporters over the event’s 25-year history. The tireless efforts of this dedicated group of park champions have transformed the landscape of Pittsburgh’s beloved parks. Help us tip our hats to the last 25 years and an unmatched legacy of generosity.
We hope to see you in your fabulous hat in Frick Park, the location of the first Spring Hat Luncheon 25 years ago.
