On March 13, more than 350 Literacy Pittsburgh friends gathered at Stage AE, helping us to raise more than $83,000 so our students can improve their reading, writing, math, English language, digital literacy, and workplace skills. One Big Table: An International Tasting celebrates the diversity of our region through food, art, and entertainment.
DJ Arie Cole kept the party going with his global sounds, and Urban Africans, Zang TKD, and Organization of Chinese Americans entertained guests with special performances. Guests sampled food from around the world and shopped at the global artisan market. More than 20 restaurants joined us showcasing Middle Eastern, Mexican, Soul, Greek, Turkish, Peruvian, Thai, and Indian cuisines and more! Go to the One Big Table page on our website to view the restaurant list and visit them on your next night out.
We are grateful for the generous support of our sponsors, especially Universal Ally, Highmark Wholecare, and all of our guests and volunteers. Congratulations to our 50/50 raffle winner who took home $4,200.
Check out the great press coverage the event received from Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and Tribune-Review.
