Great Tradition: The Taste the Good Life Charity Gala

Enjoy the best food, wine, spirits, cigars and entertainment inside a national historic landmark while benefitting a good cause.


In 1992, Joey DiSalvo started The Taste the Good Life Gala as a gourmet, five-course dinner for a small, select group of food and wine aficionados. The bi-annual event has grown and is now a sumptuous charity gala with many food stations throughout the restaurant that offer the best of food, wine, spirits, desserts and very fine cigars, as well as entertainment, raffles and silent and live auctions.


This year’s gala is set for Thursday, April 26, at DiSalvo's Station Restaurant, a registered National Historic Landmark in Latrobe, PA. The gourmet gala benefits the Blood Science Foundation which provides much-needed funds for the Central Blood Bank. Central Blood Bank serves the transfusion needs of more than 45 regional hospitals, providing blood so they can continue their life-saving missions, as well as providing funding for high school scholarships (for local high schools that conduct blood drives) and research into blood-related diseases.

The DiSalvo family saw the event as an opportunity to give back from their success, and many of the most worthy Western Pennsylvania charities have been the beneficiaries of proceeds from the gala. Come with your friends and enjoy the best of the Good Life and be a part of this grand tradition.
