Without a charitable cause, Taste the Good Life would just be a fun party. Each year the committee selects a worthy cause that has a significant impact on the greater Pittsburgh region. This year’s gala is the second annual consecutive gala that benefits Blood Science Foundation and Vitalant Pittsburgh.
