09 Feb 2008
Food, Fun and Scholarship Centerpiece of 5th Annual Glass Slipper Ball
Zonta Three Rivers North Event Benefits Women’s Organizations
Zonta Three Rivers Pittsburgh North will present it’s The Fifth Annual Glass Slipper Ball, featuring the Best of the North Hills Chefs and Wine Purveyors Saturday, February 9, 2008 at 7 p.m. at the Four Points Sheraton in Marshall Township. Hosted by KDKA anchor Stephanie Watson, the Glass Slipper Ball is one of North Pittsburgh’s largest and most popular fundraisers. In the previous four years, the event has generated more than $210,000 for scholarships that assist women through agencies like Crisis Center North, HEARTH, POWER, Girls Hope, Point Park University’s Visions of Tomorrow program, and North Hills Community Outreach.
This year’s event will once again showcase nearly two dozen restaurants whose chefs will be serving up signature hors d'oeuvresand desserts. Back by popular demand will be tastings from regional wine purveyors including: Barefoot Cellars, D’Andrea Imports, Chaddsford Winery, Laird Wine & Spirits, and The Wine Boss. A new addition to the event will be Hereford and Hops microbrewery, which will be serving up specially-made drafts.
“What goes better with fantastic food than a fine wine or a smooth ale,” event co-chair Jane Joy commented. “The wines were a big hit last year and they are back for 2008. Adding a microbrewery is for the guest who’d prefer a unique beer with their food.”
Restaurants confirmed to participate in 2008 include: Andora, Atria’s, Bravo, The Camelot, China Palace, Dominic’s Desserts, The Fig Tree, Four Points Sheraton, Fresco’s, The Hartwood Restaurant, John Marshall Catering, KeyImpact, Magoo’s, Marktfrau, Muriel’s Restaurant, Passport Café, Serenitea, Shakespeare’s Restaurant, SiBA, Specially Made by Diane, Springfield Grille, Stone Mansion Restaurant, Ugandan Gold Coffee, Wexford Post Office Deli, Wildwood Golf Club and Willow.
Along with the culinary, wine and beer samplings, guests will dance the night away with Pittsburgh’s finest variety band FINESSE and take part in voting for the “Peoples Choice Awards” for best hors d’oeuvre and dessert. And to top it all off, a stunning Silent Auction will showcase sports memorabilia, dazzling jewelry, stunning gift baskets, and much more.

Corporate sponsorships, program advertisements and other ways for local companies to get involved are all available.

Head Turning Synth-Rock Band to Perform Brillobox in Pittsburgh
Jupiter One, a colorful and energetic synth-rock band from NYC, will bring their infectious sound to Brillobox on February 9, 2008. Often compared to the likes of Talking Heads and The Cars, this band has an originality of its own, generating new fans and online blog chatter every day.


Their award winning song, "Countdown” has been infecting college radio and podcasts around the world and has recently been included in the EA SPORTS Madden ’08 video game. From the very first addictive riff, this is a thrusting, powerful and enthralling song that captures a band on the brink of stardom.


Jupiter One’s debut album was digitally released in August '07 and their self-directed music video is gathering attention everywhere. Also, the album will be re-released physically via Cordless Recordings/Rykodisc in Spring 2008 and will feature newly remixed songs.


Don’t miss Jupiter One at Brillobox (4104 Penn Ave., Pittsburgh)
February 9 / Doors: 9:30 PM / Tix: $6
