Taste of Westmoreland provides many benefits
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.
