Sts. John and Paul Parish, Cardinal DiNardo Center

Meet us under the big top to celebrate changing hearts in the Pittsburgh region during an evening of circus fun and laughter. Take a trip down memory lane as you experience the sights, sounds and smells of our version of “The Greatest Show on Earth.”

Led by our talented ringmaster, you’ll be entertained by the antics of Giggles the Clown who creates twisted, awesome, on-the-spot improvisation inflation creations, while being amazed by the magic, mishaps, and multitudinous manipulations of O’Ryan the O’Mazing during this spectacular one-ring show!

Ring Master: Doug Shields, former Pittsburgh City Council Member


$50 per person or $350 per table of eight
All event proceeds are directed to Change A Heart program needs.

Extra Mile Foundation Pirates Game

The Extra Mile Education Foundation is a foundation that funds two Catholic schools (Sr. Thea Bowman in Wilkinsburg and St. Benedict the Moor in the Hill District) as well as scholarships for children at several other Catholic schools in Pittsburgh. On Friday, August 18Extra Mile is having their annual Young Professionals event at the Miller Lite Rooftop during the Pirates game.

A ticket costs $75 (or partner up with a friend and get two tickets for $130) and includes:

  • A ticket to the game
  • An all-you-can eat buffet from 6-7:30 p.m.
  • Beer and soft drinks from 6-7:30 p.m.
  • A donation to “sponsor a student”

There are high-top tables, regular tables, and open space for mingling (or kids who like to run around) as well as regular seats, so you can get comfortable and enjoy the night however you want. It’s a fireworks night, and there will be raffle items and baskets from many local businesses and restaurants.

Here’s a link to event info and ticket sales: https://www.extramilefdn.org/extrabases.php

Last year the event sold out with over 200 young professionals attending. A limited number of tickets are available, so if you’re interested, order them sooner rather than later.
