To keep up with the impressive growth of the Sewickley community, the members of Village Green Partners unveiled a new welcome center for the town. Explore Sewickley is now open at 611 Beaver St., offering ground floor retail and the opportunity to connect with a greater number of people in the area. More than 130 guests attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony, toasting the celebration with White Diamond Vodka cocktails and wine. Appetizers from B Gourmet circulated the space, as attendees discussed ways to continue building up the neighborhood’s local businesses and positive atmosphere. “The highlight of the event was how many people in the community came out to support the efforts of Village Green Partners,” says Alex Lancianese, marketing director of Village Green Partners. “We are a nonprofit and have been working hard for almost five years now to make Sewickley a vibrant regional destination. We feel this new space is going to really help us with our efforts.”
