Night of Steel

November 2, 2019

Night of Steel is a celebration of all things Pittsburgh. On November 2, 2019 you are invited to partner with the Western Pennsylvania/West Virginia Chapter of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation to help bring awareness to our mission and partner with us to help fund cures. Your participation in Night of Steel will help supply over 80 cents of every dollar to go directly towards research and education.

At Night of Steel you will experience Pittsburgh themed food and drink, have the opportunity to network with your corporate peers, enjoy various activities to highlight your experience – including Pittsburgh based trivia, a DJ, photo booth, and much more – dancing and music, and the opportunity to help provide critical funding towards our mission.

This year we will honor two individuals, Mike Cavataio and Dr. Marc Schwartz. Both have impacted our mission through their time and efforts, making a difference in the lives of others. Mike is a long time volunteer and Team Challenge participant with the chapter. Giving of both his time and talents, Mike has donated tens of thousands of dollars through his fundraising, volunteer hours, and in-kind balloon donations. As a physician with University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Dr. Schwartz directly impacts the lives of patients every day and still makes time to volunteer with the chapter and our education initiatives to bring better awareness of IBD to the people of Pittsburgh.
