Tim andAudrey Fisher's sprawling, Strip District loft was the place to be on Oct. 2, when a contingent of the beautiful people came ready to uncork a happy hour specially designed to support Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre.

Serving as a precursor to it s Pointe in Time Ball in November, “The Wine Gathering” encouraged the likes of ball chairs Sandy andBill Lambert, Steve and Peggy McKnight, Becky Torbin,Dawn Fleischner, and Colleen andDenny Travis to bring a bottle of their favorite red or white that would, in turn, be donated to the Ball.

“How fortunate are we in a moderate city to have a world-class ballet?” Tim Fisher asked.

Meanwhile, as Etta Cox soundtracked the evening, artistic director Terrence Orr reflected on the past 17 years with the PBT as company dancers milled about.

“It's a lot easier going out and doing it yourself than watching others,” said Orr, a former dancer. “I get so nervous for them.”
