Seneca Valley Foundation to host romantic evening out

| Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2013, 9:35 p.m.

Cupid might come to the Cranberry early this year.

The Seneca Valley Foundation is selling tickets for a fundraiser to raise money for programs in the Seneca Valley School District.

The event is scheduled for Feb. 9 at 6 p.m. at Heinz Hall in Pittsburgh. The evening will include entertainment from the Seneca Valley string quartet and will culminate in a performance by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.

“I was really impressed with what the Seneca Valley School District does for the arts,” said Michael Bielski, senior vice president and chief operating officer of the orchestra. “They really treat the arts seriously.”

More than 25 businesses from Harmony, Cranberry and Zelienople have donated gift certificates, products, or cash donations for the event.

The non-profit foundation helps to fund different programs in Seneca Valley. For example, one of the donations paid for the high school band uniforms.

Linda Andreassi, a board of trustees member for the foundation, is excited to be part of a non-profit that benefits students.

“This is many months of preparation,” said Andreassi, who also is the district communications director. “We're thrilled that we're able to do this.”

The organization kicked off in March of 2012. The foundation hopes to provide scholarships to seniors to help them in their college careers.
