Dressed in their holiday finest, children and their families mingled with some of their favorite characters and enjoyed “Santa’s Christmas Circus,” a dazzling holiday revue by New York City-​based RWS & Associates.

Other favorite activities included cookie decorating, face painting, art projects, balloon art, holiday family portraits, a photo booth and food stations for all ages. Guests created wonderful, new holiday memories while raising nearly $100,000 for vital Pittsburgh Mercy programs and services that help families and children in our community.

Pittsburgh Mercy, a member of Trinity Health and serving in the tradition of the Sisters of Mercy, is a community health and wellness provider serving more than 33,000 people annually.
