The Pittsburgh Rotary Club has many reasons for presenting this event in honor of Chuck Tanner. Of course, the Club seeks to raise money for the good works of Rotary anad to increase public awareness of Rotary projects. Another is to honor Chuck Tanner, a man who personifies what is good about baseball and reminds us of past baseball glories in Pittsburgh. The recognition for Chuck is long over-due.
Also, the Club wants to establish a major annual sports banquet for Pittsburgh. In short time, we hope that this dinner/roast will be an eagerly anticipated event on the sports banquet calendar for those who want to celebrate baseball, and that the Chuck Tanner Manager of the Year Award will become highly coveted by the distinguished leaders who are so important to the success of their teams.
The Tanner Award differs somewhat from other managerial awardsin that career achievement is a major factor in the evaluations. The Rotary Club of Pittsburgh is an organization comprised of more than 150 community business and organizational leaders committed to improving the quality of life in the community and addressing the needs of people at risk.
The Pittsburgh Rotary Club is part of Rotary District 7300, currently made up of approximately 1500 Rotarians from Allegheny, Beaver and parts of Westmoreland Counties. Rotary is a worldwide organization dedicated to humanitarian service, high ethical standards in all vocations, and goodwill and peace in the world. In more than 160 countries worldwide, approximately 1.2 million Rotarians belong to more than 30,000 Rotary clubs.
