Pittsburgh's 1st Annual Soul Day


Soul Day was off the hook! I enjoyed myself immensely and it was souplifting to support our black entrepreneurs. Please plan to holdanother event like this in the future! I will definitely be there,along with my friends and whomever I can bring with me. People complainthat Pittsburgh doesn't have anything to offer, but this event was veryreminiscent of events I have attended in Baltimore, New York, andPhiladelphia. Keep up the good work!

I had a great time at the Soul Day event. This was my first time atsomething like this. My mother lives close to the Kingsley, so I toldher we should go check it out. At first she did not want to go, butwhen we got there, I could not get her to leave. I enjoyed the poetryand dancers. (My mother was out there line dancing) LOL. The food wasgreat. There were a lot of businesses and services I did not knowabout. I have already convinced the women in my family and friends todo a spa party. I am so happy that I took time out to experience thisbeautiful and informative event. My mother thanks you also.

I was a vendor at Soul Day, and I really had a great time. I made my money back,that's always a big plus for me, along with getting quality, affordable productsfrom black owned companies into the hands of our folks, I like to say buy (by) Us,For Us.....Thanks for inviting Revelations & Reflections to be a part of the 1st annual Soul Day.

Soul Day had the most wonderful vibe. The mix of people, products, services and entertainment did the soul good. Thank you and we are looking forward to next year.

My husband, "The Cookie Man" and I were vendors at "Soul Day" and we had a greattime! The folks that stopped by our table were so nice. Prior to the event, we hadE-mailed or mailed flyers to family and friends, inviting them to come. Quite a fewcame out and supported us. This was our first venture and it was quite a success!We're thinking about participating at the "African American Holiday Celebration" inWilkinsburg on Dec. 8th. Look for us there. Thank you soooooo much for "The Soul Pitt". I tell everyone about it. Thank you soooo much for the wonderful concept that was "Soul Day".
We look forward to participating next year!

I don't know where to begin with my comments about Soul day.
It was a BEAUTIFUL DAY!! I have shared with Donna how some people have the
ability to influence others. The ability to inspire, motivate and join you as you go forward with your goals; sometimes hold your hands if necessary. Some one who could be in politics and remain faithful to the cause. I saw some old friends and made some new ones.
We laughed, joked and helped one another. Most importantly we NETWORKED. I was so blessed to see such a successful event take place in the city if Pittsburgh. The atmosphere was joyous, peaceful and inspiring. The food was off the hook, and the jewelry and clothes were beautiful. I bought beautiful Christmas gifts at great prices. I was able to find a new accountant for my business as well as someone to increase my knowledge of investments.Sadly other than church you rarely see or hear of people of color getting together (especially when $ is involved) with no fighting. Thankfully I can recount that day to those who could not attend and proudly proclaim that we (as a people) came together for a cause other than a funeral or Sunday services with nothing but the angels in flight blessing and serving their people with nothing but peace and prosperity in the atmosphere!There were vendors from all over who looked like me and that in itself was a blessing. I love The Soul Pitt and The Soul Pitt family. Its an old school support system with today's technology under its wings. I am proud to be a part of it.HOTEP!

WOW, Pittsburgh sure does have a lot of Soul, which was evidenced by thelarge turnout on Soul Day. I thoroughly enjoyed myself & took advantageof some of the specials offered @ the event. I purchased an autographedcopy of the book by Rev. Sinclair Grey, III, new hair products, jewelryfrom Avon, had my eyebrows done, etc. I even have a new florist topatronize in the future. That is what Soul Day is all about...patronizing Soulful businesses & building relationships.Thank you Donna & the Soul Pitt Staff for such a wonderful event!Jackey
