Honoring Dr. Loren Roth

The Yeshiva School honored Dr. Loren Roth, senior vice president of medical services for UPMC, at its 59th "Commitment to Care" anniversary dinner at the Hilton. Roth was cited for his contributions to the Pittsburgh community, his respect for Jewish education and tradition and for his work in human rights, especially in the former Soviet Union. Karen Wolk Feinstein and Pat Siger chaired last Sunday's dinner, which was attended by Mayor Tom Murphy, Anne and Eddie Lewis, Dr. Art Levine, Bill and Lieba Rudolph, Rabbi Yisroel and Blumi Rosenfeld, Bill Lieberman, Charles and Judy Perlow, Drs. Joel and Tova Weinberg and, of course, lovely Ellen Roth.

Fair Lady Frolic

Even if Mother Nature was frowning, spring was in the smiles and the fashions on the runway at the 41st annual Fair Lady Frolic at the Hilton yesterday. Sponsored by the Italian Sons and Daughters of America, the fashion show and luncheon, "Children Are the Music in Our Lives," drew nearly 700. The event raises funds for Italian Day at Kennywood when the national fraternal organization hosts 900 special needs children. Thrilled with the turnout were honorary chair and national president Ralph Hartford, chair Maureen Yock and co-chair Jody Chifulini.

Heart of Westmoreland

Former restaurateurs Jerry and Margie Gross had the star billing Saturday night at Greensburg Country Club as recipients of the "Heart of Westmoreland" award presented by the American Heart Association's Westmoreland Division. Stealing a bit of their thunder, however, with their touching messages were heart attack survivor David DeRose and cardiologists Goplan Vasudevan, Henry Lewis and Lawrence Adler. Also front and center were the evening's co-chairs, Dr. Jack and Georgia Smith; Merrill Stabile, and Drs. David Moffa and Robert Staffen, each a spirited bidder in the evening's live auction. Joining them were such longtime supporters of this gala, an event that dates from 1964, as Michel Franklin, Betty Hammer, Evelyn Koury, Jo Milie, Cicely Monsour and Aida Spino.

Hadassah's Hope

Dr. David Zangen from Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center was the special guest this past weekend at two events sponsored by Hadassah Greater Pittsburgh Chapter. On Saturday evening, a private reception was held at the Trimont to honor Zangen, an Israeli defense forces medical officer. Guests included Hadassah local president Dotty Weisberg (with Dr. Ed), national VP Joyce Rabin, Estelle Comay and Dr. Bruce Rabin, Sylvia and Dr. Sidney Busis, Dr. Larry and Sharon Dobkin and Nancy and Michael Glynn. Sunday's benefit brunch with Zangen at the Sheraton Station Square was chaired by Chana Brody and attended by Hy and Mimi Ginsberg, Sara Guttman, Mimi and Jack Halpern and Bruce Landman.

Space & Beyond

One of the biggest blasts each year is not, coincidentally, a benefit that raises funds to send hearing-impaired children to Space Camp in Alabama. Astronaut Jay Apt served as honorary chair Thursday night when more than 200 guests gathered at the Sanctuary in the Strip to watch a fashion show (produced by Tara Rieland and Faith Veon with clothes from Adornments and hair by Mikel's Salon) and sample the great fare from Palomino. Amy Newland served as chair for the evening, joining committee members and guests like Julie Beck, Michael Casey, Laura Semple, Jim Mendelson, Susan Biagini, John Farneth, Linda Langer, Norma Jean Standish-Myrick, Phil Wolfe, Mary Prezioso, Valerie Skvarla, LisaMarie Weinzetl and Marty Smith.

Glover to the Rescue

The only lethal weapon actor Danny Glover is toting these days is his charm and charity. He was at Dowe's on 9th last night for an American Red Cross benefit where he read from the works of Langston Hughes. Among his fans and friends were Al Dowe himself, Etta Cox, Doris Carson Williams, president of the African American Chamber of Commerce, WTAE-TV's Sheldon Ingram, lawyer Martha Conley, the Rev. Derryck Tines, pastor of Sanctuary, and Kelli Serencsa and Pauline Duncan of the Red Cross.
