Giving back to the community means you are a philanthropist, while giving back the community means you are a defeated super villain. Spend the evening doing good instead of evil with today's Groupon to the Pittsburgh Presidential Salute Your Troops Gala presented by The Pittsburgh Social Exchange. The event is held on Wednesday, August 17 at 6 p.m. at Jay Verno Studios. Choose from the following options:
• For $49, you get one ticket (a $100 value).
• For $95, you get two tickets (a $200 value).
• For $175, you get four tickets (a $400 value).
The evening of libations and revelry at The Pittsburgh Presidential Salute Your Troops Gala honors servicemen and women and raises awareness for veterans' programs. Attendees will bask in live entertainment and enjoy fare from Pittsburgh restaurants, as well as network with local military folk past and present and local celebrities, while special-guest and former Miss America Laurett Ellsworth will permit a select few to play horseshoes with her crown. A portion of the night's proceeds benefit Team River Runner, a nonprofit group helping injured veterans rehabilitate and make merry through the sport of kayaking. Veterans and soldiers are welcome to arrive in full uniform, but Imperial Stormtroopers should leave their helmets at coat-check.
