On Thursday, August 4th, The Second Annual Night for Tassy is being held at The Great Hall at The Priory. The evening is a fundraiser, held in honor of Team Tassy, which is well on its way to becoming a non-profit organization, designed to assist Haitian children, like Tassy Fils-aime, who do not have the access to medicine, facilities and medical care necessary to treat their life-threatening ailments.
On August 4th, all in attendance will have the pleasure of meeting Tassy himself - a teenage Haiti earthquake survivor, who had a tumor that would have killed him, until Pittsburghers decided to do something about it. At the event, funds will be raised to bring another child to Pittsburgh to receive a similar life-saving procedure and those in attendance will be introduced to that Team Tassy child.
Local "Survivor" Ian Rosenberger is a founder of Team Tassy, and WTAE's Sally Wiggin and DVE's Randy Baumann will be hosting August 4th's event. Hors d'oeuvres begin at 6:00pm and the night, which continues until 9:00pm, will also feature a cash bar, music, silent auction, and Haiti photo exhibit and sale.
There is also a "wager" going on with the event that includes hosts Sally Wiggin and Randy Baumann. Here's how it works: Declare yourself a member of "Team Sally" or "Team Randy" by purchasing your event ticket from the appropriate option above. Then, on August 4 at the Grand Hall, we'll announce who won...and, more importantly, who lost the bet. Remember, whoever has the least amount of tickets sold in their name will have to perform/dance/sing the task/yodel/opera bet upon. What's the bet? You'll just have to come to The Second Annual Night for Tassy to find out.
Purchase Tickets for the Second Annual Night for Tassy here. And for more information, visit Meet Tassy.
