A Taste of Grow Pittsburgh
The event will feature an assortment of tastings from Grow Pittsburgh's restaurant partners who purchase locally grown produce and host fundraising dinners for us. Guests will be invited to indulge in organic foods, sip local beer and wine, listen to great music, bid on wonderful silent auction packages and enjoy the galleries, patio and lawn surrounding Pittsburgh Center for the Arts.
