Ms. Becky's Big Day

We were pleased an honored to host an event for a community icon, "Ms. Becky" Coger.  Ms. Becky is a well known North Side figure and tireless community volunteer, who puts countless hours into tending community gardens, frequently with the use of her pick up truck.  When her truck was totaled by a drunk driver about four months ago (luckily Ms. Becky was not in the truck), the community -- led by the North Side Leadership Conference -- rallied and raised about $10,000 to purchase a new truck for her, a 2003 red Dodge Ram.  Our Priory Hotel hosted the unveiling of the new truck and to toast Ms. Becky for her good works and the members of the North Side community for having her back.

The event received some extensive media coverage, including:

Pittsburgh Tribune Review                         Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
WESA Radio (NPR)                                
North Side Chronicle
