FOR RELEASE: Immediate
“Thank You, Pittsburgh” Night in Honor Of Jamie and Ali McMutrie
This Saturday, January 30 from 7-10 p.m. at Villa Southside, 1831 East Carson St. (19th and E. Carson), Diana Rua Media will host a night in honor of Jamie and Ali McMutrie that will also be a “thank you” to the many Pittsburghers who supported them in the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti. The McMutries are sisters and Ben Avon natives who saved the lives of 150 orphans following the January 12 earthquake, bringing 54 of them to the United States.
The over-21 event will be free and open to the public, with a DJ for entertainment, appetizers provided by Villa, and a cash bar. Diana Rua, who’s hosting the event, said, “This is an evening in honor of Jamie and Ali and their remarkable accomplishments in Haiti, not only after the earthquake but also over the past years in helping hundreds of orphaned children find homes in the U.S. and elsewhere.”
Ali Pace, sister-in-law of Jamie and Ali, said this is also a chance for the sisters to thank their fellow Pittsburghers for their support, and for their supporters to meet one another. “As soon as the people of Pittsburgh heard about the quake and what Ali and Jamie were doing they immediately wanted to help. They contacted their senators and congressmen, donated, and help spread the word online to help bring them home,” Pace said. “Jamie and Ali are so grateful to all those that helped, and they’re looking forward to thanking those people in person.”
