Giving Tree unveiled

A private reception was held at the offices of the Top of West Virginia Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Summit Art Gallery Thursday night, to officially unveil the Giving Tree sculpture and to offer thanks to those who have donated toward it. A special recognition also was offered in memory of the late Catherine “Kitty” Kochman in honor of her years of service to the Weirton community. The Giving Tree, sculpted by Wheeling-based artist Jeff Forster was launched as a fundraising project for Renaissance Weirton in 2019. Sponsorships on the sculpture are still available at levels between $200 and $2,000. For more information, call (304) 797-8500, ext. 1002. — Craig Howell
