Highmark Presents, "Lights! Glamour! Action!" entered it's 17th year as the major fundraiser for the Pittsburgh Film Office. On February 26, Over 700 guests walked the 515 foot red carpet to  Izzazu's "Glam Cam", where Bubba from 100.7 and Emilio Cornachione interviewed the stylish and best dressed  guests,  broadcast on the big screens throughout the venue, the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.

At the center of the VIP Reception,  a champagne toast,
Hors d'Oeuvres, raffles, and a brave model high atop the room in an 8 foot champagne glass.

The ballroom doors opened to reveal intimate tents housing  sofas, ottomans, and chandeliers. Food stations throughout the ballroom included Dunkin' Donut, Milk Shake Factory, Millie's Ice Cream, Pittsburgh Smokehouse, Lidia's , and the Oscar's candy table & bar. 

While the Oscars were televised on the big screens, guest mingled and watch the progress of special effects artist Steve Tolin of  TolinFX  and team, as they transformed Dale Capellanio into Anthony Hopkins from Silence of the Lambs.

Event planners Theresa Kaufman and Shari Zatman executed the event to perfection, with a "Lights, Glamour, Action" that surpassed all of the previous events and left patrons looking forward to next year.
