World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh Spring Soiree
June 9 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
We invite you to join us in bringing our mission to life as Pittsburghers of diverse backgrounds and experiences convene and connect at The Maverick (formerly Ace Hotel) on Thursday, June 9 for an evening that centers global education.
This event celebrates our “90+1” anniversary with an evening of global connectedness, culture, and community. We will recognize the recipients of the inaugural Illuminate Awards and feature performances, guest speakers, a fusion-inspired menu, and more.
Funds raised from this event will support our work that reaches more than 1,500 community members and more than 2,500 students in the Southwestern Pennsylvania region and beyond each year through relevant, engaging, globally-focused programs, events, and experiences.
Individual tickets are available for $150 per person and a limited number of VIP tickets are also available and include a special reception from 6-7pm and free valet parking!
Sponsorships start at $5,000 and include both event tickets and additional hospitality and recognition benefits. We welcome local businesses and individuals alike to consider joining us as sponsors!
At the Soiree we will honor four exceptional individuals in the Pittsburgh region who go above and beyond their daily responsibilities to advance global engagement and model global connectedness in their school, industry, or community. Please help us choose these awardees by nominating leaders from your community!
