THE Achievement Awards Dinner


The program recognizes leaders in the Pittsburgh community in the areas of business, education, medicine, law, community advocacy and Citizen of the Year who has most demonstrated the principles of the Iota Phi Foundation. Each year the Foundation “presents” these honorees at a black tie (optional) event which includes a program and dinner. In the past 10 years alone, more than 75 individuals have been recognized for making a difference in our communities.

During the program we also recognize leaders, organizations and institutions whose contributions to the region deserve particular note. We also present the Iota Phi Foundation Scholarship winners. (Click on image to the right for the complete program book)

The proceeds from the Achievement Awards Dinner, achieved through sponsorships, ads placed in the souvenir program booklet, and tickets sales, fund the Foundation's Social Action and Scholarship program. 


Our sponsors and donors are vital to our success. This year we were grateful to again have UPMC as a Title Sponsor for our Awards Dinner. Each year we rely on partners to underwrite portions of this event, purchase tickets to attend and/or place an ad in the Program booklet. Please review the Sponsorship Packages and consider supporting us next year.
