Winter Fundraiser Wrap-Up Social

April 22nd, 2016


Dollar Energy Fund hosted a social at The Meadows Casino last night to celebrate the successes of our winter fundraising season and thank those who supported us in our efforts.  CEO Chad Quinn addressed the crowd and premiered a brief video to highlight our 2016 Cool Down for Warmth event.

He also announced awards for the supporters in attendance.  All awards were presented by Ron Giulianelli, President of Dollar Energy Fund’s Board of Directors.

The following companies were not able to attend, but we recognized them last night and would also like to mention them here:

  • Duquesne Light
  • Highmark
  • Metropolitan Windows
  • Peoples Natural Gas
  • Terry’s Plumbing
  • UPMC
  • West Penn Power, A FirstEnergy Company

Without the support we received from all of our generous partners, we would not have been able to raise nearly $400,000 in January and February to help our neighbors in need.  Dollar Energy Fund would like to thank all who helped to make our events successful!
