Greensburg, PA (Monday, January 22nd, 2024) – Westmoreland Cultural Trust, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to stimulate cultural and economic development in the Westmoreland County region, is bringing together the county’s foremost business and cultural luminaries for an extravagant affair—with proceeds going to support Westmoreland Cultural Trust programming, facilities, people, and operations.

The Trust’s annual soirée will feature live music, captivating entertainment, lavish themed decorations, activities, dancing, signature cocktails—and mouth-watering food and desserts crafted by the region’s top culinary talents.

Food and beverage sponsors currently include JCorks, Morelands, Rizzo’s, Elegant Catering, Greensburg Country Club, Live! Casino, The Olde Spitfire Grille, El Diablo Wood Fired Kitchen, Sun Dawg Café, Cutie’s Coffee, and Crooked Creek Distillery, with more vendors expected to sign on in the coming weeks.

The evening’s main entertainment consists of Vegas-style show & dance band and crowd-favorite, “The Fabulous Gemtones.” Additional live music will include guitarist Kyle Greene. Guests who purchase the VIP party experience, which takes place before the main event, will enjoy the smooth sounds of EBT Jazz—as well as a complimentary glass of champagne, a swag bag, and more. VIP party sponsor Greensburg Country Club will be providing guests with a delectable assortment of hors d’oeuvres, masterfully prepared by their executive chef.

The “Shaken, Not Stirred” theme wouldn’t be complete without Martini and Whiskey bars and signature cocktails—which will be provided by Crooked Creek Distillery. Beer, wine, and other beverages will also be available for purchase—with proceeds going to the Trust. A Cigar tent is also planned for this event.

New for 2024 and free for guests, the Trust has created a mystery “License to Thrill” passport experience, which will allow party guests to earn fun prizes for participating in activities and solving riddles. The Palace Theatre Stage (which will be branded as the Casino Royale Lounge) will also be open at no cost during the main event, something that has not been available in previous years. In partnership with Live! Casino and the Greensburg Country Club, guests will have the opportunity to participate in gaming tables for fun while enjoying an on-site putting green that brings to life iconic scenes from “Goldfinger.”

Party guests also have an opportunity to become their own special agent with an exclusive GLOCK WATCH giveaway, which is generously being donated for raffle by Beeghly & Co. Jewelers in Greensburg.

A limited number of tickets are available for this exclusive event—with prices ranging from $75 to $175 depending on Trust member status and experience option chosen.  A select number of student tickets will also be offered.
