The verdant vines of La Casa Narcisi Winery in Gibsonia provided a relaxed countryside backdrop for Unwined: A Toast to Hope for a Cure on Aug. 5.

“We wanted to provide a different event so everyone could be outside,” said Tiffany Casarcia, now in her third year of co-chairing the event with Debbie DePew.

“We love Narcisi. It has a very Tuscan feel,” DePew said.

The Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation's Cancer and Blood Disorders Auxiliary fundraiser raises awareness of pediatric cancer and the research being done in Pittsburgh, as well as money to purchase equipment for research efforts and provide support for families with patients undergoing treatment, said Brooke Mullin, chairwoman of the Cancer and Blood Disorders Auxiliary.

The event honored Jenn and Paul Noro as this year's Patient Hero Family. Their son, Mario, 11, diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in September 2011, is scheduled to end treatment by Dec. 19.

“Anyone at any time can hear the words ‘Your child has cancer.' It's important to be thankful for the blessings you have and give back to a cause you may one day need,” Jenn Muro said.

Also sipping and socializing in the sunshine:Debbie Flaherty and James Campbell, Laurel andLyle Odelein, Robert andAmy DeMichiei,Scott andSusan Lammie and the Hon.Jill Rangos and spouse, John Rangos Jr.
