Brookline was buzzing Wednesday afternoon when City of Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl, along with local business owners, residents and city officials gathered to kick off the Pittsburgh "Biz Buzz" program.
Ravenstahl spoke outside of Cannon Coffee Wednesday, and presented members of the Brookline Chamber of Commerce with a $2,500 check to help the organization start the "Because You're Mine, I Shop the Line" program.
The grant was provided by the Urban Redevelopment Authority. It will be used in Brookline to support Boulevard Bucks, a shopper reward program that offers benefits for shopping at Brookline businesses.
Check back with Dormont-Brookline Patch tomorrow for a video of Ravenstahl's speech on the Boulevard, and for information about the program.
