Each year, Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen A. Zappala, Jr. and Mrs. Mary Zappala proudly host a gathering of a veritable ‘who’s who’ in Pittsburgh in honor 18 successful and prominent women from our region.  Honorees are selected based on excellence in their fields, significant contributions to the betterment of their communities, and outstanding accomplishments for the advancement of women.  Nearly 350 guests attend each year, including Pittsburgh’s most notables, alumnae honorees, dignitaries, guests, and the media.

The Women of Achievement Awards Dinner will open this year with Multiple Emmy®-Award winning journalist and host of Comcast Newsmakers, Tonia Caruso, who will introduce actor and producer Frank Dicopoulos — best known for his role as Frank Cooper on Guiding Light for twenty-two years — who will emcee the evening’s festivities.
