Cabaret for a Cause for Cystic Fibrosis at the Baja Bar & Grill featuring Mike Buzzelli

“Cabaret for a Cause,” a benefit for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation takes place
Thursday, July 26 at the Baja Bar and Grill at Fox Chapel Yacht Club, 1366 Old
Freeport Rd, Pittsburgh, PA 15238.

Pianist Alicia Giove will accompany performers Patrick Bovo, Lindsay Pingor,
George Heigel, Alex McDaniel and Kelsey Purcell. They will be singing a variety
of show tunes, standards and contemporary hits. Local comedian, Mike Buzzelli,
will be the Master of Ceremonies.

The show’s organizer, Joe Nickel, a member of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s
50 Finest, said, “I organized this event not only to showcase the amazing talent
we have here in Pittsburgh, but to raise awareness of this deadly disease.”

He added, “The more I learn about Cystic Fibrosis the harder I want to work to
raise money for this cause. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation gets no direct money
to fund research from the government. All of the money to fund research is
through philanthropy and fundraisers like this one.”

Nickel is enthused about the upcoming event. “I am really excited. I think its
going to be an amazing evening.”

All proceeds from the show benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Pre-Sale
Tickets are available at Showclix.com by searching “Cabaret for a Cause.”
Tickets are $20.00 online and available for $30 at the door. In addition to
listening to a fantastic line up of performers, complimentary hors d'oeuvre will be
served.

“Cabaret for a Cause, an Entertaining Fundraiser for Cystic Fibrosis” on

Club, 1366 Old Freeport Rd, Pittsburgh, PA 15238.
