Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation is a public charity under 501(c)(3) and 170(b)(1)(A) of the Internal Revenue Service Code.

“Proceeds benefit Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation. Funds raised will support the Creative and Expressive Arts Therapy program, which aims to help even the youngest patients cope and communicate.” 


Creative and Expressive Arts Therapy program enables children who are hospitalized for illness or trauma to utilize artistic, imaginative outlets to cope and communicate. Through the assistance of our certified art therapists, our patients and families create artwork and/or engage in musical opportunities to reduce stress, express their emotions, and create a distraction from the pain and anxiety they might feel during their stay at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.




The History of Bhangra in the Burgh


For the past 12 years, Bhangra in the Burgh has been Pittsburgh’s premiere philanthropic bhangra competition. Teams from around the nation convene at Soldiers and Sailors to celebrate the rich and colorful cultural dance. All profits from the dance go directly to charity, with the aim of supporting the Pittsburgh and Indian community. It’s 100% organized and run by students at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh.
