Intervala Employees Support Paws Across Pittsburgh Animal Rescue

Intervala’s paws-itively generous employees are helping make life better for rescue animals in the Pittsburgh area. Our team donated hundreds of pet essentials, including food, toys, treats and collars, for dogs and cats receiving assistance from the good people at Paws Across Pittsburgh, a 501(c)(3), foster-based, non-profit animal rescue society. The all-volunteer organization saves, rehabilitates and finds loving, fur-ever homes for abused and unwanted dogs and cats in our area. Thanks to our awesome employees and Paws Across Pittsburgh for making a difference in the lives of our local four-legged friends in need!

It was freezing outside, but the only ice visible at Intervala’s Third Anniversary Employee Gala was chilling the champagne! More than 150 employees and guests bundled up in their winter finery to enjoy a night of dinner, dancing and other delights with work friends at the DoubleTree in Monroeville, Pa.

Fun with work friends.

 The party started with a laid-back cocktail hour and tasty hors d’oeuvres followed by a delicious dinner during which laughter and conversation filled the air. After dinner, party-goers quickly made their way to the dance floor as Dj-Tone Pgh turned up the tunes. Beautiful Day Photo Booth supplied everyone with laughs as attendees wore silly props to capture fun memories of the evening. Gift cards and baskets donated by Intervala’s generous suppliers were raffled off during the evening. Even more surprises were in store as lucky employees won PTO days, Pittsburgh Penguins gear and tickets, and a 43-inch HD flat screen TV.
