Raising funds for those affected by cancer is the goal of the first Steel City “Sip & Sweets,” set for 9 to 11 a.m. Oct. 20 at Nova Place, 100 South Commons, on Pittsburgh’s North Side.

More than 20 local coffee shops, bakeries and juiceries will offer beverage and baked good samples, according to a news release.

Those attending can vote for Pittsburgh’s “Best Sip” and “Best Sweet.”

Vendors also will sell some of their signature items during the event.

Vying for “best sip” and “best sweet” status will be Nothing Bundt Cakes, Duck Donuts, The Commonplace Coffee Co., The Coffee Tree Roasters, Zeke’s Coffee, Adda Coffee & Tea House, Priory Fine Pastries, Azorean Cafe, Prantl’s Bakery and more.

The family-friendly event will raise funds for Lending Hearts, an organization dedicated to providing emotional and social support to children, young adults and families affected by cancer, according to the release.

Tickets are $25 per person, $5 for those under 12.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
