For a number of reasons, many people benefit from the Taste of Westmoreland.

The event, in its 13th year, will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. March 12, at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg, off Mt. Pleasant Road.

First, for $18 in advance, it's a fun night out for the 1,000 who typically attend.

Folks will sample some of the region's finest foods, win fabulous door prizes, enter to win raffles and listen to music spun by disc jockeys Bill Miller and Fred McCloy.

Second, it's an opportunity for more than 40 restaurants, caterers and other vendors to make community contacts and show off specialties ranging from fine to casual dining.

And finally, its philanthropic.

Proceeds benefit education and community programs at Congregation Emanu-El Israel in Greensburg, the only house of Judaism in central Westmoreland County.

Unserved portions are donated to the Westmoreland County Food Bank.

See congregation members for tickets, or stop by Foodland Fresh, Greensburg; Giant Eagle, Eastgate Plaza; area Shop 'n Save stores; Michael's of Ligonier; Weiss Furniture, Latrobe; and Festival Foods, Penn Township.

Admission at the door will be $20 for adults, and $10 for children under 12.

TribLIVE commenting policy

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.
