In French, the term “cuvee” refers to special blends of high-quality wines.

The Community Foundation of Westmoreland County and the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies borrow it for an annual Cuvee Community event at Green Gables Restaurant in Jennerstown.

Held this year on May 12, the event brings the two community foundations together for a night of wines professionally paired with a multi-course dinner.

Wine merchants Mark and Susan Vitale of Vivino Selections in Pittsburgh supplied guests with a variety of Sicilian and Tuscan vintages.

The Westmoreland County group will apply its part of the proceeds to its Day of Giving match pool. Through grantmaking, community leadership and donor development, the organization assists nonprofit partners in the development of Westmoreland County programs.

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.
