Dine with the Pittsburgh Steelers soiree a success

Oh, just another ordinary evening for more than 235 who joined Hines Ward, Larry Foote, Charlie Batch, Ryan Clark and honorary chair L.C. Greenwood for dinner in the East Club Lounge of Heinz Field on Friday for the American Respiratory Alliance’s Dine with the Pittsburgh Steelers soiree.

Fanatics flew in from as far away as Halifax, Seattle, Sioux Falls and even Cleveland and Cincinnati (will they be let back into Ohio after fraternizing with the enemy?) for this sell-out that offered luckies the chance to share supper with a current player or one of the oldies but goodies.

The boys graciously signed autographs until their hands fell off, posing for pictures and talking with each and every fan that stood in line for the meet ‘n’ greet (the longest of which was Ward’s, which seemed to snake its way halfway to Timbuktu).

“That was so awesome!” exclaimed 8-year-old Genesis Harrill after her photo op with No. 86.

Awesome, indeed. All those terrible towels scored more than $73K for the ARA.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
