PITTSBURGH - The 18th annual UPMC Children’s Ball was held Saturday night to benefit the UPMC Health for Life Summer Camp at Braddock.

The Health for Life camp provides the opportunity for children from the Braddock community to learn about positive activities while receiving instruction in academics, the arts, career exploration, nutrition and life-skills education. Campers also give back to the community by completing community service.

Clyde Jones said, “It's a wonderful camp for children who are economically disadvantaged, to give them an opportunity to learn life skills, to learn about banking, to learn about health and also have a lot of fun.”

Saturday’s luau-themed Children’s Ball was held at the Carnegie Science Center.
