Private Home Dinner to Raise Funds for Women’s Cancer Research
As part of the fifth Pittsburgh Wine Festival, Chip and Courtney Muse will be hosting a dinner at 7 p.m., Wednesday, April 25, at their Sewickley home to raise money for and awareness of women’s cancers. Proceeds from the dinner, which will feature Chef Tony Pais from Café Zao and a vintner from the Pine Ridge Winery in Napa, Calif., will benefit the Magee-Womens Research Institute & Foundation (MWRIF). MWRIF works to raise funds to support the Magee-Womens Research Institute (MWRI), Magee-Womens Hospital and Magee Womancare International, a global outreach program for women’s health.
Established in 1992, the Magee-Womens Research Institute was the first research institute in the nation to focus exclusively on women and infants. MWRI scientists are studying ways to improve care for gynecological and breast cancers, preeclampsia, preterm birth, HIV/AIDS, postpartum depression, nutrition in pregnancy and a range of other women’s health issues.
MWRI is a member of the Association of Independent Research Institutes, a group of 89 independent, nonprofit research institutes in the United States whose primary mission encompasses a specific research discipline. MWRI has attracted $185 million in project grant funding focusing on the critical need for research in women’s and infant’s health and representing the Institute’s continued strong ties to the University of Pittsburgh Schools of the Health Sciences and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
The dinner is one of several being hosted in conjunction with the Pittsburgh Wine Festival to benefit cancer research in Pittsburgh.
