Art Rooney was a larger than life figure beloved for his kindness and generosity. In 1974, to help stabilize the fragile finances of his favorite charity, the Catholic Youth Association, Mr. Rooney began a tradition: The Art Rooney Award Dinner. The event honors individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the Pittsburgh area in business, sports, broadcasting, public service, and other fields. Now in its 44th year, and continuously supported by son Dan, and grandson Art Rooney, III, the Art Rooney Award Dinner is a signature event in Pittsburgh attended by people from all walks of life.

The list of Rooney Award Winners is impressive. It includes legendary sports figures like Arnold Palmer, Chuck Noll, and Joe Paterno, as well as captains of industry like U.S. Steel CEO, Edgar Speer, Heinz's Tony O'Reilly, and PPG's Vince Sarni. Recent recipients include Sy Holzer, President of PNC Bank Pittsburgh; Jim and Suzy Broadhurst of Eat'n Park; former Steelers Terry Bradshaw and Jerome Bettis. A complete list of award winners is show below.
