For a swingin' time, you can count on the Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill — at least once a year.

The sisters hosted the fifth annual Sounds of Charity concert on March 23 in the Seton Hill University Performing Arts Center in downtown Greensburg.

PianistJohn Olearchick provided music for the cocktail-and-hors d'oeuvres hour, while the Glass City Swing Band headlined the main event.

Guests were encouraged to do more than sit in their seats and tap their toes. A dance floor in front of the stage awaited the more rhythmically gifted audience members.

Proceeds benefited the Far East Missions of the international congregation of women religious, with ministry in the areas of education, health care, pastoral care and social services, including a sheltered workshop and school for exceptional children.

Welcoming guests to the event were sisters from South Korea.

Lead organizer was SisterLouise Grundish, assisted by sisters Anita Schulte, Patrice Hughes, Mary Norbert Long and Anne Toomey, along with public relations director Jane Strittmatter. Sister Louise also gave special thanks for support from John andMalinda Sherid.

Seen swingin':Gene Forish, Terry and Sherry O'Halloran, Ray and Sandee Zelenak, Ron Kowach and Donna Fike, Lil Sherry, Pat Darbous, Richard andJoanna Stillwagon, John and Nancy Weir, Debbie Campbell and Dr.Don Rinchuse, Susan Wisneski, Joy Merusi and Sister Catherine Meinert.

Tearing up the dance floor: John and Deana Foley, Andy andLisa Pope, Bruce Meyer andGwen Loughner.
