If you don't have tickets, it's not too late to get them for the 13th annual Savoring Sewickley event at the Sewickley Public Library.
The culinary extravaganza, hosted by the Friends of the Sewickley Public Library, runs from 6 to 9 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 14, and includes some of Sewickley's finest chefs and caterers.
More than a dozen will serve up one or two--and in some cases three--of their signature dishes for guests to sample at the annual dining fundraiser.
"It's just one of the most fun evenings that I know of in the community," said Wayne T. Murphy, president of the library's Board of Trustees. "It's just a delightful evening."
The theme of this year's event celebrates the library's four-star status.
Murphy said the Sewickley Public Library is the only library in the state given a four-star rating.
"It’s really quite an honor for this library," Murphy said.
As an added touch this year, and in celebration of the four-star recognition, a special celebratory punch will be offered along with the beer, wine and sodas.
Local mayors, including Sewickley Mayor Brian Jeffe and Glen Osborne Mayor William Boswell, will serve guests. State Rep. Mark Mustio, R-Moon, is also expected to help out.
Donations for the event are $60 and invitations are available at the library.
Organizers ask that attendees RSVP in advance so that the chefs know how much food to prepare for the evening. Chefs donate their time, talents and ingredients to support the libary while guests lend support with financial donations, according to the library.
"It’s a major fundraiser for the Friends of the Library," Murphy said.
Those who cannot attend, can still make a donation to support the library's mission of serving the Quaker Valley communities.
The library has announced the following chefs are committed to participate in the event:
Allegheny Country Club
Half Nych Hot Dogs
Sewickley Heights Golf Club
Others are pending
