The Greensburg Club of Italian Women hosted its annual Scholarship Wine & Cheese Chinese Auction on April 27 at Rizzo's Malabar Inn in Crabtree.

The sell-out event raises funds for scholarships for female students of Italian descent from Greensburg Salem, Greensburg Central Catholic and Hempfield Area high schools. This year, the club will award each of 11 young women a $1,600 scholarship.

The club was started in 1936 by Italian immigrant women from the Hilltop section of Greensburg and has been going strong ever since. Club president is Michele Answine and event chairwoman was Gloria Shoup.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
