A letter from the President


Since 1995 the Pittsburgh Harlequins have sponsored rugby programs for at-risk youth, ages 8-14, in neighborhoods throughout the greater Pittsburgh area, staffed exclusively with volunteers from the playing side and alumni of the rugby club. Our organization received a Mentoring Excellence Award last year from the Mentoring Partnership of Southwestern PA.


Now it’s your opportunity to participate in these programs. Let me introduce you to the brand new membership drive for the PITTSBURGH HARLEQUINS CHILDRENS CHARITIES.


For $50.00 annual dues, good through December, 2015, you can become a partner in our sports programs for at-risk youth in greater Pittsburgh neighborhoods. You are then eligible to attend all Pittsburgh Harlequin events and three (3) special membership events annually at no charge.


The first of these events, an Octoberfest with brats and beer, will take place at our facility at 101 Eisele Road (Indiana Twp.), on Thursday, October 23rd from 6:00-9:00 pm. This event will include a short presentation featuring our mentoring programs.


The next event will take place on, Thursday, March 12, 2015, which will be a St. Patrick’s Day themed event.


The third event on the membership calendar will be held concurrently with the rugby tournament for the Youth Programs, to be held at our facility on Saturday, May 30, 2015.


         The membership drive is being conducted by Dawn Renee. You may contact her at [email protected] or by phone at (412) 589-3296. You may become a member directly from our website, www.pitthcc.org. Take a look at our video HERE.
