Landau Building Company was among those honored at the Passavant Hospital Foundation Legacy of Caring Gala. The Foundation recognized Landau’s contributions over the past 28 years, totaling to $51,600.
Landau has been proud to be affiliated with the Foundation and is humbled by the recognition. The gala was truly a wonderful night, especially hearing about the contributions made by the other honorees, including doctors, nurses, and affiliated individuals.
In attendance was past president Roy Landau, who assumed leadership in the 1970’s and first established relations with the Foundation, as well as current president and Roy’s son Jeff Landau, who continues to support the Foundation.
On Friday, September 21st, Landau held its annual Customer Appreciation Shoot at Millvale Sportsmen’s Club. We were lucky with beautiful weather again and had a great time with everyone who attended.
A special thank you to AG Mauro Company, Allen & Shariff, Blumling & Gusky, Carl Taylor & Sons, Construction Tool Services, DeWalt Service Center, Fallon Electric, Hanlon Electric, Paul Lumber & Supply, RAM Acoustical Corporation, Seubert & Associates, and Triad Engineering, all of whom donated great raffle prizes to our event.

Throughout the past year, Landau Building Company is proud to have worked closely with and supported the Passavant Hospital Foundation, a nonprofit organization that raises funds to develop new hospital services and facilities at UPMC Passavant in McCandless and Cranberry townships as well as to provide health education and programming for the community. We worked with the Foundation for our annual Customer Appreciation Shoot in 2015 and 2016, with all proceeds benefiting the organization, and they are truly hardworking, wonderful individuals. Back in August, the Foundation hosted a 4K/8K Scrub Run/Walk at North Park. Landau sponsored two water tables for the runners and walkers, and some of our employees participated in the event. It was a great time for us and for the community!
On Friday, September 23rd, Landau held its 12th annual Customer Appreciation Shoot at Millvale Sportsman Club. All of the proceeds from the donations, silent auction, raffle tickets, and 50/50 benefited the Passavant Hospital Foundation. We had some great items for the raffle and silent auction items, like Steelers and Penguins tickets, golf outings, a coffee basket, wine basket, and gift cards. We seem to be blessed with beautiful weather every year (knock on wood!), with clear skies and warm sunshine for our guests. Check out more pictures on our Facebook page. Waterfall Catering from the Carpenters Training Center provided a delicious Oktoberfest buffet lunch, including a Bavarian bratwurst bar, wienerschnitzel, potato pancakes, and warm pretzel basket with dipping mustard. Every year our guests can enter in a friendly competition, and this year’s winners are: First Place: Scott Hazlett from DRS Architects, Second Place: Bill Paul of Deckman Company, Third Place: Fritz Baehr, F.J.

This past June, we lost a talented architect and dear friend, Paul Slowik, to cancer. He ran a successful architectural firm, Paul Slowik & Associates, and he was an active member of the Passavant Hospital Foundation. Paul’s father actually designed the original Passavant Hospital building in 1964, so the Foundation was close to his heart. Paul was Chairperson of the Foundation’s Legacy of Caring Awards, which honors the individuals who make Passavant Hospital grow and thrive. This year we decided to make our annual customer appreciation shoot the Paul Slowik Memorial Shoot, partnering with the Passavant Hospital Foundation to transform it into a charity event. We worked closely with Paul’s wife, Joyce, every step of the way. Paul and Joyce’s family came into town specially for the event, including son Bill and his wife Barb, daughter Stefany and her fiancee Broox, and even Bill’s in-laws and childhood friend Mike Taylor.
Our event was graciously sponsored by MedExpress, UPMC, Heritage Valley Health Systems, Architectural Innovations, E.A. Fischione Instruments, Radelet McCarthy Polletta, Blackhawk Neff, FMRW, North Park Lounge, Steve and Mary Bishop, and Joyce Slowik and friends. We are so grateful to have had their support. Joyce collected donations from businesses for the silent auction, which resulted in some great prizes, and many of our subcontractors/fellow industry members donated gift cards and other gifts for the silent auction and the raffle. Some of the silent auction prizes included Paul’s Jaeger machine, Pirates tickets, one night hotel stay with restaurant gift cards and an assortment of Paul’s “favorite things”. The Passavant Hospital Foundation handled the monetary transactions and ran the 50/50 at the door, which was a hit. At 11:30 a.m, we served our annual Oktoberfest themed lunch and Vice President Steve Bishop thanked everyone for their support and attendance. Steve was a good friend of Paul and spoke about him as a friend, as a professional, and as a man. “Paul – an infectiously positive person who touched our lives through his art, his ‘architecture,’ his humor, his humility, and his smile. Always an upbeat person, never a dull moment, and a true friend. We will always miss you.”
Because of everyone’s generosity and hard work, we were able to raise $18,500 for the Passavant Hospital Foundation. Landau Building Company, represented by Jeff Landau, Sharon Landau, and Steve Bishop, presented the check at the Foundation’s Legacy of Caring Gala on October 8th. Paul Slowik was honored this year for his contributions over the years and for his dedication to the Foundation.
