Having a glass of wine (or maybe two) at a scenic area winery is a great way to wrap up the work week.

Westmoreland Walks Inc. offered that opportunity to about 130 supporters with Pink Corks at the Vineyard, on Aug. 2 at Bella Terra Vineyards near Hunker.

The sunset event started with hors d’oeuvres and wine-tasting (beer or cocktails for those so inclined), progressed through the evening to dinner and concluded around the beloved Pittsburgh cookie table.

Guests also had a chance to try their luck with raffles and a silent auction, and that traditional American outdoor test of skill, cornhole.

Greensburg-based band The Bricks provided a ’70s soundtrack for the event.

Founded in 2002 by a group of area women whose lives had been affected by breast cancer, Westmoreland Walks hosts events throughout the year to raise funds for breast cancer awareness and research, support for breast cancer patients and their families — including a Spa Serenity Day of pampering for survivors — and scholarships for students whose lives have been affected by the disease.

The group’s annual signature event, the Pink Ribbon Walk, is coming up Oct. 5 at Twin Lakes Park in Unity.

Board members are Kathy Brown, Cricket Rizzo, Rose Buric, Connie Tamewitz, Debbie Weinstein, Elizabeth Alcorn, Rebecca Hazy, Wendy Lint, Cindy Shaffer and Kim Yagla.

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.
