GASP-toberfest: Friday, October 20, 2017

Join us for fun fall festivities at GASP-toberfest as we celebrate a year’s worth of victories. Now more than ever we need champions for clean air, and we want to thank our members and volunteers who have continuously helped us to improve the air quality of southwestern Pennsylvania. The evening will include authentic German food and drink, silent and pick-a-prize auctions, fall-themed games and activities, and live oompah/polka music from Roger Day (tuba), Janice Coppola (clarinet), and Frank Pusateri (accordion). We will be honoring two community members–Mark Dixon and Dr. Deborah Gentile–who, through activism and education, have truly stood out as Champions for Healthy Air. Our featured speaker will be Rebecca Kiernan, the Senior Resilience Coordinator for the City of Pittsburgh, who will speak on the city’s Resilience Plan and its implications for our air quality.

This year we are lowering the cost of our benefit in the hopes that it is affordable to everyone wishing to attend. Any additional donations along with the purchase of your tickets would go a long way in funding our educational and advocacy work!
