Voices & Vines

Please join us for an incredible evening of music, fine wines and good cheer in the spirit of Thanksgiving!

"Voices & Vines" is a fundraising concert benefit for the Homeless Children's Education Fund (HCEF) to help kick off National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week.

Did you know there are more than 630,000 homeless in the U.S., which includes over 160,000 homeless children - including nearly 1,700 homeless children Allegheny County alone?

Founded in 1999, Pittsburgh’s very own Homeless Children's Education Fund (HCEF) has become one of the nation’s leading pioneers – as other cities learn from HCEF’s success in partnering with 25 homeless housing agencies to provide school supplies, afterschool programming, summer camp activities, science and arts workshops, field trip grants, and other educational enrichment programs to help bridge the gaps for children experiencing homelessness and their families.

And on November 15 -- the day after “Voices & Vines” -- we should all be proud to know that HCEF will be hosting a National Summit as leaders from around the country gather in Pittsburgh to discuss these critical issues.

Coincidently, November 15 is also the one year anniversary of the Pittsburgh Winery! If you haven’t tried their hand crafted wines (made from grapes from around the world) or checked out their great new intimate concert space, this is your chance.

And the timing couldn’t be better for “Voices & Vines” guests to try these wines and maybe buy a few bottles to take home for Thanksgiving, holidays, office gifts, etc. Imagine sharing a Pittsburgh Winery bottle (Merlot, Zinfandel, Malbec, Petite Sirah, Cabernet, or White) and surprising your family and friends.

“Voices & Vines” features a special concert by Emily Forst, a gifted singer-songwriter (who plays both guitar and piano) making a special stop in Pittsburgh after her European Tour. As a rising rock star based in New York City, her first album “Here We Go" was recorded at the world famous Avatar Studios. Her sultry-soul voice, music, and original lyrics have received international acclaim www.emilyforst.com
So there is much to celebrate at “Voices & Vines” and be thankful for as we help support and kick off National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week.

“Voices & Vines” takes place from 6:30-9:30 PM at the Pittsburgh Winery followed by an After Party at the nearby CJ's Jazz Club located 1/2-block from Pittsburgh Winery. The After Party will feature live jazz by the great Roger Humphries and his band. And perhaps with some encouragement, Emily Forst will step outside of her rock genre and perform a few more songs with Roger’s band for a truly one-of-a-kind evening.

Buy your tickets now for “Voices & Vines” before it sells out!

General Admission Advance tickets are only $25 while VIP tickets are $55 (which includes wine tasting reception, autographed CD, wine, etc. at 6:30 PM prior to 7:30 PM concert)

    Someone has already bought ticket(s) that they can't use. See me at the door. But please RSVP so I know you're coming. Then you can pay $25 at the door.

    If you haven't got your ticket yet -- you can save by buying in advance ($25) instead of paying $32 at the door. Advance tickets via ShowClix only takes a couple minutes, and advance sales will close at 5:30 PM.

    Also, feel free to come a little earlier (say around 6 PM) before others arrive so there will be more time to enjoy a complimentary wine tasting and little tour along with complimentary lite bites! For tickets, please visit ShowClix online http://www.showclix.com/event/3785575 or call 1.888.71.TICKETS [masked])

    In addition to great wines, just wait until you hear Emily's voice and touching lyrics -- a mix of rock/pop/other genres while many songs deal with issues related to relationships, adversity, growing up and finding one's place in the world, etc.

    Also, there is plenty of street parking as well as a parking lot across from Pittsburgh Winery that can be used at night for Winery events.

    For anyone with a question about parking, there is plenty of street parking in this section of the Strip District. In addition, I believe there is also a parking lot across from Pittsburgh Winery that can be used. The lot is owned by someone else but they let Pittsburgh Winery customers use it at night.

    Also, the Meetup would save money by buying in advance ($25) instead of paying $32 at the door. Also, the Meetup will be able to come a little earlier (say around 6 PM) before others arrive so there will be more time to enjoy a complimentary wine tasting and little tour along with complimentary lite bites! This will also allow us more time for mingling prior to the concert - as we also learn about the Homeless Children's Education Fund (HCEF) and 1-year anniversary of Pittsburgh Winery!

    We're 8 days away from “Voices & Vines” ... and it would be nice for people to buy tickets in advance and also be able to give the Pittsburgh Winery an idea of how many might be able to come early from the Meetup (say around 6 PM) before others arrive.

    General Admission Advance tickets are only $25 and the group will be able to enjoy a wine tasting and little tour along with complimentary lite bites! This will also allow us more time for mingling prior to the concert - as we also learn about HCEF and the terrific 1-year anniversary of Pittsburgh Winery! And so you won't need to buy the VIP ticket to enjoy the wine tasting and little tour along with complimentary lite bites!
