Urban Garden Party


FRIDAY, JUNE 20, 2014

Join us for our 17th annual fundraiser, the Urban Garden Party: Wild West chaired by Dan Drawbaugh and Sarah Thomas. Each year the Urban Garden Party attracts a sold-out crowd of 1,400 revelers to the Mattress Factory to support "art you can get into!" Live entertainment, food + drink from over 40 of Pittsburgh's hottest restaurants and caterers, a silent auction and general mirth and merriment make this bash what the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Marylynn Urrichio calls, "the envy of every nonprofit in town." So polish your spurs and untangle your fringe and get on down to the hottest saloon in town.

VIP tickets open the doors to the exclusive VIP Pre-Party from 6 - 7:30PM, hosted by Bob Sendall of All in Good Taste Productions and featuring signature cocktails and delectable eats. Your VIP pass also gets you access to the VIP Lounge -- including exclusive entertainment, a private bar, restroom and courtyard for VIPs only -- throughout the night.

General Admission tickets get you into the hottest party of the year beginning at 7pm, with live entertainment, open bar, fare from over 40 food vendors and hobnobbing with Pittsburgh's art elite!

MF Members get a great deal on Garden Party tickets. E-mail members[at]mattress.org for your special discount code.
