Yesterday, the staff at Mainstay woke up to warmth and sunshine to celebrate each other at our 20-year anniversary Staff Appreciation Luncheon. Over 200 staff and board members filled the elegant LeMont ballroom as we celebrated well over 1,000 cumulative years of milestone anniversaries. Long applauds, loud cheers and a standing ovation may have shaken Pittsburgh’s picturesque Mount Washington!

The event kicked off with a warm and from the heart speech by Kim Sonafelt, CEO. She expressed gratitude for the dedicated staff and sincere appreciation for being a part of the Mainstay family. Board Chair, Bryan Cox, followed citing an enthusiastic vision for Mainstay future, “the best is yet to come.”

Mainstay employees work tirelessly, day in and day out, encouraging and supporting those entrusted in our care. Providing an afternoon of surprises, gifts, and words of appreciation is one of my favorite days of the year.
