A Night for Tassy Part II

It's our privilege to be hosting "A Night for Tassy 2" at our Grand Hall at the Priory on Thursday, August 4, 2011. The event is “A Night for Tassy 2,” and is a fundraiser to bring over a young man from Haiti for much needed surgery. Last year’s event, the brainchild of former Survivor star Ian Rosenberger and his friends, raised more than $30,000 to transport 19 year old Tassy Filsaime to Pittsburgh’s Allegheny General Hospital for life saving surgery. Tassy, whom Ian had met in Haiti after last year’s earthquake, suffered from a massive tumor on his jaw. Following the successful fundraiser, Tassy underwent surgery successfully and will be enrolling in school in the Pittsburgh area this fall.

It’s our honor to be working with Team Tassy on this event, which aims to save one life through the generosity of Pittsburghers. Team Tassy has identified another Haitian youngster in need of life saving medical care, and, with the help of AGH, will bring him to Pittsburgh for treatment.

The event is a lot of fun, with music from the Penn State gospel choir, food from our Grand Hall chefs, and a selection of excellent wines. Please consider attending.

Tickets are $50 in advance. You can order tickets through www.teamtassy.org.
