Soiree in the Strip 2024

Soiree in the Strip: A celebration and fundraiser for The Midwife Center

The Midwife Center is excited to announce that the second annual Soiree in the Strip will take place on Saturday, September 28, 2024 at The Original Pittsburgh Winery!

  • 6 PM-7 PM | VIP Reception - an intimate gathering of our best supporters. Includes a wine tasting and special hors d'oeuvres.
  • 7 PM-9 PM | Main Event - a party featuring live music, 2 drink tickets, silent auction, and more in the Winery's charming and expansive Cellar.

In 2023, the first-ever Soiree in the Strip celebrated the 20th anniversary of The Midwife Center relocating to the Strip District and raised over $131,000 to ensure equitable access to TMC's services.

New this year: We will welcome guests into The Original Pittsburgh Winery's open air, street-level Tasting Room before descending into the Cellar for event programming. Guests will have access to the Tasting Room throughout the evening to enjoy the full experience that the Winery offers and connect with friends in a more intimate setting.

DiAnoia's Eatery, voted Pittsburgh's best Italian restaurant will be back with an updated menu, and the Winery will be selling limited-edition, Midwife Center-themed wine bottles benefiting TMC.

Sponsorships and VIP Host Committee tickets are available now! VIP tickets and main event tickets will be on sale this summer.
