The Tree of Life tragedy affected the entire Squirrel Hill community and the Mineo family, owners of Mineo’s Pizza House in Squirrel Hill, wants to do something to support the community.

The pizza shop and bar is hosting “Recover Squirrel Hill,” a fundraising and healing event in hopes of “recovering our spirit of Squirrel Hill with kindness, hope and love.”

There will be Chinese and silent auctions as well as a 50-50 raffle and a chance to win Mineo’s pizza every month for a year. The event is from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Nov. 14 to raise money for The Victim’s Funds and Pittsburgh Police Injured Officers Fund.

Ron Cook and Joe Starkey of “The Ron and Joe Show “ on sports radio 93.7 The Fan will be broadcasting live from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Acoustic guitarist Sloane Simon will perform at 5:15 p.m.

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.
