A lucrative opportunity awaits young professionals at Heinz History Center‘s 17th annual History Uncorked gala. On March 6, the 1940s-themed party will host more than 1,500 guests, making this a rare and exclusive networking venture for participants. Not to mention, the gathering will surely get everyone in the spirit for the upcoming unveiling of the History Center’s new exhibit, We Can Do It!: WWII.

As the nation commemorates the 75th anniversary of the start of WWII, We Can Do It! promises to bring the 1940s to life. Spanning across a remarkable 10,000 sq. ft., the exhibit explores multiple viewpoints from a historical period in time, with the focal point serving as the roll Pittsburgh played in the war on both the home front and on the battlefield. The exhibition will also delve into the development of the Jeep, produced by the American Bantam Car Company in Butler, PA; reveal the stories behind real-life “Rosie the Riveters” and local Tuskegee Airmen; and display a multitude of rare artifacts, lifelike museum figures, interactive displays, and enticing museum settings.

The We Can Do It! exhibit will open officially on April 25, and will remain accessible to the public through the remainder of 2015.

With access to all of the History Center and Western PA Sports Museum exhibits, a silent auction, Pittsburgh food and drink vendors, and live music, the party itself will be nothing less than lively and engaging. VIP guests will also gain access to a private reception, bar, and raffle prizes, plus a one-year membership to the History Center (all guests must be 21+).
