More than 500 tickets were pre-sold for the March 5 event co-chaired by Meg Gleason and Robert Barth Jr. Between the record attendance and food vendors who donated their bites, the happiness went on for hours at Wintergarden at PPG Place.

This annual friend-raiser and fundraiser benefited homeless single parents and children at Sisters Place and raised over $11,000.
