Negroni Week runs through June 30, with proceeds of some sales benefitting Pittsburgh Cares.

Pittsburgh Cares will benefit as you imbibe a tasty cocktail this week.

Five establishments are sharing part of the proceeds of Negroni Week with the nonprofit.

Wigle Whiskey Barrelhouse is part of the fundraising pour on June 26; Wigle Whiskey Distillery takes its turn on June 28.

Drink up and do some good at Grapperia, Market Street Grocery and Mimi’s Modern through June 30.

Each June, participating bars and restaurants sign up to mix classic Negronis — a mix of gin, sweet vermouth and Campari, garnished with an orange peel — for a charity.

Since Imbibe Magazine and Campari launched Negroni Week in 2013, it’s grown from about 120 to almost 10,000 participating venues around the world. To date, they have collectively raised about $2 million for charitable causes, according to the event’s website.

Pittsburgh Cares works to provide volunteer opportunities for adults, youth, businesses and nonprofit organizations.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
