IOCC Pittsburgh Metropolitan Committee Wine Tasting Event
May 3, 2012
The location of the 2012 IOCC Pittsburgh Wine Tasting Benefit was the OCA Archdiocesan home of Right Reverend MELCHISEDEK, Bishop of Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania. The beautiful pastoral and informal setting provided a unique environment for tasting amazing rustic Mediterranean foods and wines, fellowship and learning about the far-reaching ministries of IOCC. Lou Zagami, IOCC Development Officer, gave an excellent overview of IOCC's global work and IOCC's ability to minimize expenses and maximize outreach coverage. Lou's discussion was followed by a lively and insightful question and answer session. Even though the gathering was smaller than other years, the net proceeds and donations were over $2200, nearly the highest ever received for this event.
The event was sponsored by the IOCC Pittsburgh Metropolitan Committee. The Committee wishes to thank Bishop MELCHISEDEK for his generous support and for opening his home the faithful attendees. Also we would like to thank Medure's Catering of New Castle, PA for the excellent and generous catering services. We would also like to thank all of the members of the IOCC Pittsburgh Metropolitan Committee for making this event such a success.
