Event photos, recap and more

Thanks to a sold-out crowd of 675 guests and the support of many partners, Riverlife’s Party at the Pier 2012: Neon & Nature was a smashing success! Riverlife’s annual celebration of Pittsburgh’s downtown riverfronts took place Friday, September 7th at the stunning outdoor riverfront amphitheater at Rivers Casino. The setting showcased what Riverlife is all about: beautiful riverside parks with public access and recreational activity, riverfront economic development, cutting edge design, and ecological restoration and stormwater management. Over $120,000 was raised to support Riverlife’s mission to reclaim, restore and promote Pittsburgh’s riverfronts.

We especially want to thank our title sponsor for the past three years, PNC Financial Services, and our dynamic co-chairs Renee and Lucas Piatt (shown above with Riverlife President Lisa Schroeder) for being enthusiastic supporters of Party at the Pier. A big round of applause also for the incredible team at Rivers Casino, our gracious and generous hosts for the evening.

Finally, we could not have pulled off the event without our 2012 sponsors, host committee members, volunteers, and the Riverlife staff.

Please take a look at the beautiful photos from the party that captured all the eye-popping color, thanks to Ray Miles of Ray Miles Creative and Victoria Bradley at TABLE Magazine:
