Burgatory is sponsoring the seventh annual “The Pittsburgher Burger Bash,” with numerous regional contenders competing for the title of “Best Burger in the ‘Burgh.”

The bash is set 1 to 6:30 p.m. Oct. 12 at the 299 West Bridge St., Homestead location.

A panel of notable food enthusiasts, including The Paramount Network series “Bar Rescue” chef Brian Duffy, will judge more than 20 burger recipes and crafted cocktails.

Ticketholders can vote for the people’s choice winner.

According to a release, a portion of the proceeds will benefit Biggie’s Bullies, a foster home-based rescue for pit bull type dogs in Pittsburgh, and Face 2 Face Healing, which works to build a community for people with disfigurements.

Guests will enjoy live music, interactive games, a Burgatory shake stand and contests.

Vying for “best” burger will include Bobby D’s BBQ PA, The Pittsburgh Bottleshop Cafe, Burgh’ers Brewing, Coughlin’s Law Kitchen and Ale House, The Crafty Jackalope, Hard Rock Cafe Pittsburgh, Jamison’s on West Liberty, The Vault Taproom, Twelve Whiskey Barbecue, Winghart’s Burger & Whiskey Bar and Wolife’s Pub.

The Pittsburgher and Diana Rua Media are producing the bash.

Tickets range from $10 to $65.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

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.
