Anyone looking for a unique, fun filled evening out with the added bonus of benefiting those in need. Check out our generous sponsors. Perhaps your company would like to join the list?


The Garbage Bag Gala, Emcee'd by PensTV Host and KDKA-TV Traffic Reporter Celina Pompeani, brings fashion, food, and fun together in one room while raising money for The Salvation Army Family Caring Center. Local designers and fashion boutiques design outfits out of garbage bags and other recycled materials, and these creations are then modeled and judged in a fashion show. In addition to watching the fashion show, guests enjoy hors d'oeuvres and a fabulous silent auction. To add to the fun, guests are encouraged to create their own "trashwear" and wear it to the event.

The Garbage Bag Gala promotes the idea that everyone and everything deserves a second chance to be something great. Our designers give new life to garbage bags and other materials, and the Family Caring Center empowers families to change the course of their lives as it provides not only temporary housing and meals in their time of crisis but also resources to assist them in becoming self-sufficient.
