PITTSBURGH, Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The seventh annual Pittsburgh Whiskey & Fine Spirits Festival creeps back to Rivers Casino on Friday, October 25, 2013. This year, over 1,500 guests are challenged to don their spookiest costumes at the Halloween themed event. During the festival, attendees will sip luxury liquors, gamble, and indulge in delicious eats from 6 pm to 9 pm.
This year's festival benefits "Team Tassy," a local charity dedicated to raising funds for and awareness of poverty in Haiti. Pittsburgh native Ian Rosenberger founded the charity in 2010 after helping Tassy, a Port-au-Prince teen suffering from a facial tumor, receive funding to undergo surgeries in Pittsburgh to remove his tumor. With that, "Team Tassy" was born and now aids dozens of Haitian families with education, healthcare, and employment.
Dale Markham, General Manager for the festival, is elated that this year's scary soiree benefits such a great cause. "The festival only recently connected with 'Team Tassy' and we are already overwhelmed by the outpouring of aid they have offered families," Markham commented. "I can't think of a better charity for the Pittsburgh Whiskey Festival to be benefitting this year!"
