“Hooked on a Cause” Dining and Wine Dinner

Posted on

Hooked wineOnce again during this upcoming Lenten Season, The Carlton is teaming up with Catholic Charities for the third annual “Hooked on a Cause” campaign.

The campaign is designed to encourage Catholics to dine out during Lent and raise money for the thousands of acts of charity performed each year by Catholic Charities. Instead of “giving things up”, Catholics and all patrons can “give back” dining out! No need to patronize the neighborhood Fish Fry’s every Lenten Friday…enjoy the great fare of a participating restaurant!

We are donating a portion of all of our Food and Beverage sales during Lent and guaranteeing to raise at least $5,000. With your help we can raise even more! We are featuring a “Hooked on a Cause” Special Wine Dinner on Friday, March 6 with a major part of the proceeds helping us to achieve our goal. Five courses (without meat) paired with exquisite wines – including four highly rated Chardonnay’s!

We will also taste the offerings of two famous local winemakers – North Allegheny’s Ehren Jordan – the acclaimed winemaker of Turley and Failla – and a Pinot Noir by former Patz and Hall Winemaker – James McCeney. James will be on hand to discuss his outstanding Bridges Sonoma Pinot Noir and the interesting Winemaking Trail that has led him to Pittsburgh! Please enjoy an outstanding evening and help a great cause! Click here to view the menu for our special “Hooked on a Cause” Wine Dinner menu.
