Urban Garden Party 2014: Wildly Successful!

2014 Michael Cannon |
Last Friday night over 1,300 people turned out to hit the hottest saloon in town. The tent was rocking and the garden was packed! This year's Urban Garden Party offered food + drink from the city's best restaurants and bars, mechanical bull riding, a silent art auction, the ultimate Johnny Cash tribute with Terry Lee Goffee and much more. After tallying up all of our ticket sales and sponsor pledges, we brought in a whopping $255,000 for the museum.

Our photographers were roving the party all night and we're uploading pictures to Flickr as we get them. Share your photos with us using #MFWildWest or #UrbanGardenParty... we'd love to see them! If you had your photo taken in the photo booth at the party, your pictures may be here.

Finally, a big Mattress Factory thank you to our co-chairs Sarah Thomas + Dan Drawbaugh and all of our wonderful sponsors. We could not have thrown the hottest party in Pittsburgh without the help of every single one of them. Make sure to help us thank our sponsors by seeking them for any of the professional services they provide.
