Girls in Western Pennsylvania will be spending some much needed quality time with their moms when Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield and their CommunityBlue network of hospitals, including Sharon Regional Health System, hosts It’s a Girl Thing Mother/Daughter Event for more than 1,000 mothers and daughters.

The free event will take place on Sunday, August 26, 11:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. at the Hilton Pittsburgh & Towers. Currently, there are very few programs focusing on fostering the bond between high school-aged daughters (grades 9-12) and their mothers, making this a unique opportunity for women who live in Western Pennsylvania. Registration is limited; call 412-402-2222.

Although the event is free of charge, attendees are being asked to bring a canned good that will be donated to community food banks throughout the region.

“Today’s women are busy, often making it difficult for mothers and daughters to spend quality time together,” said Cynthia Dellecker, Highmark’s Vice President of Product Management and Development.
“We feel that this event will really open the lines of and serve as a memorable day in honor of their special relationship.”

Shelly Duffy, Pittsburgh radio B94’s morning show host, will serve as the event emcee and will welcome attendees. Kicking off It’s a Girl Thing will be a mother/daughter luncheon and fashion show. Just in time for the start of the new school year, the fashion show will feature fall apparel from Saks Fifth Avenue. Healthy eating tips from expert nutritionists, skincare, smart shopping tips, beauty advice and self-defense strategies will be available throughout the afternoon sessions for participants to attend.

The presenters are among the best in their fields, and they are sure to provide the girls with new ideas and goals. Focusing on how to “Accentuate the Positive” in a mother-daughter relationship, Dr. Darrell Burnett, a nationally recognized clinical psychologist and family therapist, author and lecturer, is back in Pittsburgh for Highmark’s second CommunityBlue event. He was a featured speaker at the Coaches’ Camp that was held at PNC Park earlier this year. Dr. Burnett, along with Joan Biber Saluga, Westmoreland Regional Hospital’s psychiatric therapist, will share their expert advice on building the bond in the mother-daughter relationship.
