Join us for Celebrate the Center 2023 on September 22nd.

Celebrate the Center (CTC) is the Lauri Ann West Community Center’s premier fundraiser and a highly-anticipated social event in Fox Chapel, Pennsylvania. This annual community celebration draws hundreds to our picturesque hilltop terrace in the Township of O’Hara to enjoy a night of fine food, music and libations. Here, families, friends, colleagues and area businesses gather to support a community resource for wellness, learning, growth and discovery.

2023 is a special year for us because it marks the 40th anniversary of the old Boyd Elementary being opened as a community center. Years of hard work and determination by a small group of community members helped to open the doors. This year, while celebrating how far we’ve come, we also want to focus on those who made it happen! Join us in honoring our legacy volunteers, donors and employees.

The Center Shines On!
