In-kind donations are non-cash gifts that help support WQED Multimedia by providing a product or service, such as floral arrangements for an event, printing or catering services.
At one recent event, the owner of McCandless Floral, Janet Woloszk, graciously donated her services by creating numerous beautiful floral arrangements for the event free of charge.
If you are interested in donating in-kind through your business, please contact Peter Riesbeck by calling 412-622-1506.
Sponsor an Event
Here at WQED, we host countless events every year. Though these events are essential to maintaining community support and carrying out the mission of WQED, hosting them is no simple task. Sponsoring an event provides extremely valued support to WQED Multimedia, while at the same time giving your business valuable exposure to everyone who attends or reads about WQED events.
One of the cover stories in the April 2006 issue of Pittsburgh magazine highlighted five power couples in Pittsburgh. To debut the article, Larrimor's clothing store hosted a celebration with WQED Multimedia in honor of these five special couples who make such a difference in the Pittsburgh community.
The party, called the Power of Pittsburgh, took place on April 6th in the marble-lined downtown location of Larrimor's. Guests came in their most fashionable attire, and enjoyed hors d'oeuvres and cocktails while bidding on a silent auction. The evening also featured a variety of memorable performances from the Zany Umbrella Circus.
