Dear Mr. Muchnok,
Thank you and Leggett Kitchens for supporting Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation through the 2011 Gigliotti Holdings Golf Classic with your contribution of $150.00 for a full page ad.
Proceeds of this event will be applied to the most pressing needs of Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC: providing exceptional care, supporting promising research, training tomorrow’s pediatricians, realizing the dream of a new, more family-friendly campus, and honoring our commitment to never turn away a child in need.
For more than 100 years, Children’s hospital has been the only hospital in western Pennsylvania dedicated solely to the car of children. As we look to the future, we are proud to have the support of community members like you who join us in our dedication providing healthy futures for children.
On behalf of our physicians and the entire staff of Children’s Hospital, we thank you and Leggett Kitchens for your generosity. Your gift is making positive difference in the lives of the patients and families we serve.

Dear Leggett Kitchens,
Thanks to your support, this year’s Banquet was our most successful ever. Our sold out crowd enjoyed a fabulous night in a spectacular landmark. Lauren Dungys’ talk provided the perfect mix of football, family, and faith. The icing on the cake was our three clients who chose life courageously shared their powerful stories. At the close of the evening, guests were asked to respond by sponsoring a day at one of our centers. We were overwhelmed by the response.
We couldn’t make these nights possible without your help. Thanks again for Being A Voice for the voiceless.

Ross residents Aracely Ibarra and husband Franklin Soriano, expecting their first child on July 6, are looking forward to getting a free crib from Women’s Choice Network of Pittsburgh.
”It’s definitely a lot of help,” said Ibarra, 28. “It’s an emotional experience — happiness — but on the other side, you spend a lot of money when it’s your first one. I didn’t have anything for a baby.”
The organization has received 30 cribs from Stanley Furniture in Stanleytown, Va., and has arranged for three North Hills churches to deliver and put them together. It marks the biggest cache of cribs the center has received in its 25 years of existence.
”This is a huge, huge blessing to the girls that we see because, No. 1, they need a crib, and they really need the help to get the crib in their house,” said Amy Scheuring, executive director of the Oakland-based anti-abortion group.
The crib delivery is part of Baby Steps, the network’s program to teach mothers about infant care. The mothers meet with counselors who ensure they are getting prenatal or postnatal care. The network provides free tests for pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases, sonograms and vitamins.
”A girl might choose life, and we’re glad that she does, but we want to continue a journey with her to support that decision and to make sure she has what she needs,” Scheuring said.
The cribs, which can convert into children’s beds, come with a gift basket containing baby blankets, clothing, formula and diapers.
Distributing the cribs are the Allegheny Center Alliance Church in the North Side and North Park Church and New Community Church, both in Wexford.
North Park Church has recruited 40 volunteers, who will buy mattresses and baby supplies and distribute and assemble 10 cribs.
”Part of our desire is to engage in the community in the name of Christ,” said Bruce Allison, executive director of North Park Church.
Having left Mexico to study English at the University of Pittsburgh, Ibarra has spent four years in America. She worked as a nanny before she became pregnant. Her husband, who is originally from the Dominican Republic, sells cell phones.
On behalf of ACHIEVA, thank you for your generous donation of a Carlton Restaurant Gift Certificate. This donation which you have valued at $100.00 will be used in support of ACHIEVA’s 2011 Pittsburgh Promenade Auction.
For more than 50 years, ACHIEVA has provided supports to more than 10,000 children and adults with disabilities. With your help, this commitment will be maintained and enhanced. We are proud to have you as a partner in this effort.
Again, our thanks for your support and generosity!
Recently, Leggett Kitchens participated in an event with the BARTKO Foundation. The BARTKO Foundation assists minority mothers to reach their quest of economic and educational self-sufficiency.
