Jefferson Memorial Cemetery receives backlash for annual car cruise
A Pittsburgh cemetery is facing community backlash after hosting a charity car cruise on its grounds. Jefferson Memorial Cemetery, Funeral Home, Crematory and Arboretum hosted its annual car cruise on Sunday with a beer tent, food trucks and live music. Some people said the event caused heartache for people who went to the cemetery Sunday to grieve the loss of a loved one. Others said they didn't mind that there was an event because it brought the community together. Jefferson Memorial Vice President Dagny V. Neel Fitzpatrick said that they're a memorial park and not a traditional cemetery. They shared a statement that said in part, "We strongly believe a memorial park is more than just a place for burials as our scenic settings invites families, visitors and the community at large to form new traditions of life gatherings." The memorial park has hosted its car show for 10 years to raise money for the American Cancer Society. -CBS News
