Please join us as we honor Swin Cash — the WNBA star, two-time Olympic gold medalist, and philanthropist from McKeesport, PA — who will receive the Chuck Cooper Career Leadership, Diversity and Community Service Award during this important fundraising event. We will also present PNC with the Chuck Cooper Foundation Trailblazer Award in recognition of its outstanding support.

Each year at this luncheon, the Chuck Cooper Foundation also presents scholarships to deserving graduate-level students to help ensure they have the opportunity to further their academic careers and achieve their professional goals. The foundation was established in 2011 to continue Cooper’s legacy, and we have distributed $31,000 in graduate scholarships and awarded close to $3,000 in book stipends to the students we serve since 2013.

The Chuck Cooper Foundation Awards Luncheon — which will be hosted by the Pittsburgh Penguins this year — is our largest annual fundraising event, and you can help us achieve our mission by becoming a sponsor. In doing so, your company’s name will be associated with this great cause and with Pittsburgh icons such as Chuck Cooper, Swin Cash and PNC.
