CLO Ambassadors to Hold 15th Annual Wine Tasting & Silent Auction, 3/2


The Pittsburgh CLO Ambassadors hosted a Wine Tasting and Silent Auction preview party for sponsors and members of the press on January 30, 2012, at the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh.  The preview party was held to raise awareness for the Ambassadors' 15th Annual Wine Tasting and Silent Auctionwhich will take place Friday, March 2, 2012, at the Duquesne Club, and will feature wines from Capital Wine & Spirits. 

Event guests will have the opportunity to sample premiere wines as well as bid on unique silent auction packages.  This year's packages include a walk-on role in a CLO production, tickets to local cultural and sporting events, autographed memorabilia, fabulous getaways and once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

"Helen 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 2.  CLO Education programs reach more than 50,000 students in the region every year," added Co-Chair Jennifer Jack of ATI Allegheny Ludlum.
