Some 600 people packed the ballroom of the Omni William Penn Hotel, Downtown, Sunday, for The Friendship Circle’s annual celebration and graduate presentation.
Fifty-one young people from across the area were among this year’s graduates, one of whom — Dani Plung — addressed the gathering.
In addition to a video presentation about the work of Friendship Circle, titled “Friendship is Priceless,” Ilyssa Ringold and Marc Unangst spoke about the organization from a parent’s perspective.
There was also a raffle drawing, a graduate photo and gift presentation and an executive report by Rabbi Mordy Rudolph and Dr. Danny Rosen.
Friendship Circle is in its seventh year in Pittsburgh.
