Sweet Gesture Event at Inventionland Raises Nearly $56,000!

Last month, Inventionland hosted the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation’s “A Sweet Gesture” fundraising event. Today, we’re pleased to announce that the official numbers have been tallied and the event raised nearly $56,000 for the Foundation’s Family Life Auxiliary.

The Valentine’s Day “A Sweet Gesture: Chocolate Factory of Invention” event attracted more than 420 guests to our creative wonderland, which Whirl Magazine deemed a “magnet for inventors with a dream” in their April 2013 issue, which has just hit newsstands.

“Guests reveled in the presentation and taste of fresh fruit kebabs, displayed on giant red and white polka-dotted mushrooms, with vanilla dipping sauce and real golden eggs filled with velvety cream of tomato soup. How sweet, and scrumptious,” Whirl’s writer commented.

The magazine also published a few photos from the event in their latest issue and online at whirlmagazine.com.

The Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation’s event at Inventionland was also covered in the Pittsburgh Business Times’ “After Hours” section in early March.

There, Mr. and Mrs. Davison appeared with David and Laura Mabon. Ms. Mabon co-chaired the event.

Congratulations to the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation on another great “A Sweet Gesture” event! We’re so glad we got to be a part of it!
