Ice Gala 2023

Our Annual Ice Gala is back for the 8th time and we would like to spend the night with us to celebrate our Workforce Development Initiatives with the German American Community in Pittsburgh.

This years gala is presented by Bank of America and our event theme will be German Cars. We made it a tradition to take the pleasure in hosting members, supporters and friends of the German-American business community to raise awareness and funds for our Pre-Apprenticeship and Apprenticeship Programs. We want you to celebrate the growth and success for our programs with us and cheer the companies and Apprentices participating in it. 

On top of all that we are proud to announce that our third cohort of apprentices will graduate in Spring 2023. Our fundraiser is the perfect opportunity to celebrate their achievements with a Graduation Ceremony and receive their certifications. 

Year after year we welcome regional business leader and the who is who of the German American community as they toast to the strength of the transatlantic connection between Germany and the U.S. and to recognize the dedication of our community, partnerships and sponsors. The event draws more and more guests each year with appearances of C-level executives and business leaders from a broad range of industries represented in the Pittsburgh region.
