American Red Cross of Morgantown Prepares for Biggest Fundraiser of the Year

Posted: Updated:
 The American Red Cross is gearing up for one of its biggest fundraisers of the year: A Taste of Morgantown.

The annual event invites some of the city's best restaurants to set up shop inside West Virginia University's Erickson Alumni Center so attendees can sample their dishes.

Organizers said the event draws hundreds of people and dozens of local businesses.

"I know the Cupcakerie was there last year. I'm pretty sure they're going to be there again this year. Oliverio's is usually there, so that's a good time. The Terra Café is confirmed, so far, but other than that, we're still working on it. There's also a raffle, so if a restaurant can't attend, they'll throw in a gift card," said Nora Gingrich, public relations intern at the Red Cross.

Tickets for the event are $40 a piece, or $75 a couple. It'll take place on June 11.
