The Children’s Sickle Cell Foundation Inc. hosted a “Dazzle In Denim” event at the Pittsburgh Athletic Association in Oakland. The event promoted awareness of sickle cell disease and the sickle cell trait. This was an evening of awareness, entertainment and included a silent auction. The attire was “Denim Chic” and the honorary chairperson was Pittsburgh Steeler Ryan Clark and his wife, Yonka. Several Steelers, including Troy Polamalu, came out in support of the fundraiser. The cost was $100 per person.
