Notes from a Tuesday night township meeting.

Concert & Dinner Benefit for Cancer Fight

Baldwin Township Commissioner John Paravati promoted a special fundraiser during Tuesday night's township Board of Commissioners meeting.

The fundraiser is a dinner and concert event on March 9 to benefit Carol Reffner, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2012. Carol is the wife of Castle Shannon Volunteer Fire Department Chief Bill Reffner. (Castle Shannon Fire services Baldwin Township.)

Tickets to the event, which will be held at the fire department's station along Route 88 (3600 Library Rd., Pittsburgh, PA 15234), cost $20 each and include a buffet-style pasta dinner and performances by local country/rock bands The Hills and Johnny Miller & The Back Sliding Fools.

Some beverages will be provided at no additional cost. Doors open at 5 p.m., and the bands start playing at 8.

A Chinese auction and raffle games will also be held.

All proceeds will go toward Carol's medical bills and expenses.

Local children are invited to take part in cookie-decorating, face-painting, Easter bingo and more and will have a chance to meet the Easter Bunny.

New Township Manager Search

The commissioners went into an executive session at the conclusion of Tuesday's public meeting to discuss candidates to replace Mary McGinley as the township's manager.

Paravati was excused from the executive session since he is related to one of the candidates.
