The Pittsburgh CLO Ambassadors hosted a Wine Tasting and Silent Auction preview party for sponsors and members of the press on January 29, at the Sheraton Station Square in Pittsburgh. The preview party was held to raise awareness for the Ambassadors' 16th Annual Wine Tasting and Silent Auction, which will take place Friday, March 1, 2013, at the Duquesne Club, and will feature wines from Capital Wine & Spirits.
Event guests will have the opportunity to sample premier wines as well as bid on unique silent auction packages. This year's packages include a walk-on role in a Pittsburgh CLO production, tickets to local cultural and sporting events, autographed memorabilia, fabulous getaways and once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
"Since its inception, the Wine Tasting and Silent Auction has raised more than $800,000 to benefit programs including the Pittsburgh CLO Academy, the New Horizons Program, Creative Vision and the Gene Kelly Awards," said Wine Tasting and Silent Auction Co-Chair, Lisa Woods of Burns White, LLC. "The CLO Ambassadors are pleased to have this opportunity to support quality arts education for young people in our communities."
"Lisa and I would like to invite and encourage everyone who recognizes the critical role the arts play in children's lives to attend this wonderful event on March 1st. Pittsburgh CLO Education programs reach more than 50,000 students in the region every year," added Co-Chair Stephen Bloomburg of Post & Schell.
This annual event sells out quickly. Tickets for the Wine Tasting and Silent Auction are available at two price levels and can be purchased online at pittsburghCLO.org or by phone at 412-281-3973 ext. 234.
