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.
The Democratic-controlled Senate last week voted 59-41 to reject construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, one vote shy of passing the legislation. President Barack Obama is expected to veto any repeat effort next year when Republicans take over the Senate and would have the votes to push the project forward. The President is under pressure from two opposing sides. Pro-oil Democrats and some unions want him to approve the pipeline. But conservation and environmental groups, mostly, want him to reject it.
