Friday June 14 in Pittsburgh’s South Side
The public is invited to “kick up its heels and kick off its summer” Friday evening June 14, when Family Hospice and Palliative Care presents Soul to Sole, 6-11 p.m. at J. Verno Studios, 3030 Jane St. in Pittsburgh’s South Side. Soul to Sole will feature live music from Pittsburgh’s favorite 70s, 80s and 90s R&B band, House of Soul. The evening will also feature dancing, food, drinks, an entertainment memorabilia silent auction sponsored by Huntington and prizes for the most outrageous “soles” (footwear), sponsored by Barefoot Wine and Bubbly.
Soul to Sole is the ideal event for anyone ages 18 to 108 who loves music, food, dancing, entertainment and fun. As far as the venue, reviews on Yelp.com call J. Verno Studios “as versatile as it is impressive,” “insanely gorgeous” and “fun.”
“Soul to Sole has something for everyone,” said Christine Jamison, Special Events Coordinator for Family Hospice. “Flavorful food stations, fun footwear contest, House of Soul band, and a celebrity-loaded silent auction, are guaranteed to be good for the soul.”
Soul to Sole will also feature a photo booth, so guests can create their own photographic keepsakes.
Another highlight of the event will be an entertainment-themed silent auction of autographed memorabilia, sponsored by Huntington. The silent auction is literally a list of “Who’s Who” when it comes to memorabilia. It includes autographed items from: Madonna, Bon Jovi, Justin Bieber, The Black Keys, Doobie Brothers, Fleetwood Mac, Green Day, Andrew McCutchen, Olivia Newton-John, Stevie Nicks, Carrie Underwood, Rod Stewart, Sandra Bernhard, David Sedaris, Pete Townshend, Diana Krall and more.
