About

Savoring Sewickley is an annual fundraiser hosted the Friends of the Sewickley Public Library.  The first Savoring Sewickley, Chapter 1, was hosted by the Friends of the Sewickley Public Library in October 2000.  Before moving to the Sewickley area, Don Reinhardt, owner of the Sewickley Café, had hosted the Taste of Louisville, which involved coordinating over 100 restaurants for a food sampling. When he moved to Sewickley he shared this wonderful concept with the Friends.

Savoring Sewickley is now one of the Quaker Valley area’s most popular annual fundraisers.  Interestingly enough, the event has not changed much! The Friends aspire to maintain a convivial and casual evening featuring signature dishes from many of our favorite local restaurants. The fundraiser continues to be as much for our library supporters as it is for raising funds.

Proceeds from the event support the Sewickley Public Library and its efforts to serve the community by providing funds for programming, activities, collection development, and other needs.
