Winter is unfortunately still with us, but it’s now time to start planning for the AWCC summer 2015 fundraiser, A Tour & Tasting in the Homes and Gardens of Old Allegheny, to take place this year on Friday evening, June 5 and Saturday evening, June 6, from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm. It’s a house and garden tour. It’s a wine tasting. It’s an evening of entertainment.
This year our tour will be highlighting France and featuring both red and white regional French wines, hors d’oeuvres paired to complement those wines and cheese tastings and desserts at seven homes and gardens in our neighborhood. We have invited a wine specialist to educate guests, guides and homeowners about wine tasting.
We may still need a home for the tour, so If you would like to offer to open your home or garden for the tour, please contact us as soon as possible. We also will need many volunteers to:
- Be tour guides
- Help homeowners to serve, pour and clean up
- Help run the tour that weekend (take tickets, direct visitors, etc.)
- Be on our committee (and while we promise to limit the number of meetings, remember that we always “taste” wine at those meetings!)
First meeting will be Feb. 19, 2015 at 7:00 pm at the Burton’s, 926 Beech Avenue. Join us!
If you can help with any of these, or if you can provide any stories about French influences in our neighborhood, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org , or call either Trish Burton at (412) 523-9402 or Deb Kelly at (724) 316-7213.
Please help us to get the word out to friends and co-workers about our event. Tickets can soon be purchased on our website, www.alleghenywest.org or by calling 1-888-71-TICKETS, Monday – Friday, 9:00 am – 9:00 pm.
