Aspinwall Volunteer Fire Department members will invite guests to raise their glasses later this month, as part of a new fundraiser.

The department will hold an Italian wine tasting event on Aug. 30 at Parkview Volunteer Fire Department Social Hall in O'Hara.

Joe Giuffre, assistant fire chief, said the department was looking for a different way to raise money.

“There's all these different types of fundraisers that fire departments are already having, from bingos to cash bashes to gun bashes, fairs... So, we're just looking to expand who donates to us and do something that's not over saturated,” Giuffre said.

For its first wine tasting, Giuffre said, the department wanted a wide selection to work with and chose wines from Italy.

“We don't want to narrow it down,” Giuffre said. “We're just trying baby steps and take it from there,” Giuffre said.

The department hopes to do more tasting events, if the first one is a success, Giuffre said.

“We're just trying to do something different to keep people's interest,” he said. The event also will include door prizes, basket raffles and a 50/50.
