(Pittsburgh) January 25, 2019 -- In celebration of the Allegheny Regional Asset District’s (RAD) 25th Year and the significant support they have provided to the National Aviary through the years, the National Aviary announced today that on the 25th day of each month the National Aviary will offer special activities, prizes or discounts for visitors. 

“To kick-off the yearlong celebration, on Monday, February 25th, the National Aviary will offer 25% off general admission rates for all visitors,” said National Aviary Executive Director Cheryl Tracy.

“We truly would not be where we are today if not for the support RAD has provided to the National Aviary through the years, she adds. “They have provided funding for critical projects on an ongoing basis. The services we are able to provide to the community are available because of RAD, and our upcoming celebrations show our thanks to the community and to RAD for all they do to help cultural assets like us thrive.”

“We are proud to support the National Aviary, and of the growth that they have achieved with public investments since RAD’s inception,” says Richard Hudic, Executive Director of the Allegheny Regional Asset District. “Our region is fortunate to be home to the nation’s Aviary, and we are appreciative of the community’s role in supporting vital cultural assets like this.”

Each month’s activity will be announced via the 25 RADical Years webpage on the National Aviary web site www.aviary.org, via social media using the hashtag #RAD25 and in the organization’s Airmail e-newsletter. Announcements will be made on the 26th day of each month for the following month’s activity.
