SSB Bank hosting ‘shop for a cause’ event Dec. 19 to help domestic violence victims

A bank in the North Hills is hosting a charity fund-raiser that mingles the fun of a night out with the girls, shopping for bargains and an opportunity to help women trying to overcome domestic violence and other trauma.

SSB Bank on Perry Highway in McCandless is playing host to an event called Shop for a Cause: Ladies Night Out Benefiting HEARTH, which will be held from 6:30 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 19 at the Foundry Table & Tap in the North Shore.

“With the hustle and bustle of worrying about your own family and friends, so many of us struggle to find the time and means to give back to our community like we wish we could,” said Jessica Merolillo, the bank’s director of marketing.

Merolillo said the unique event, which is in its first year, is a chance to relax with friends, support local businesses and help others in need.

Tickets cost $15 per person and include a drink ticket, light fare, a pair of raffle tickets for door prizes and access to one-time only deals from local businesses and vendors including Urban Fit Co., Premier Jewelry, Sengence, Thirty One Gifts, Rodan + Fields, LuLaroe, and My Sweet “O.”

Tickets also will be sold at the door, but space is limited.

All the proceeds from the event will be donated to HEARTH , a local non-profit organization that provides transitional and permanent housing for women in northern Allegheny County with children who are experiencing homelessness and are survivors or domestic violence or other trauma.

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.
