Wine, Dine & Unwind

The annual Wine, Dine & Unwind was a smashing success!

It was another successful Wine, Dine & Unwind in October. The annual fundraiser offered attendees the opportunity to mix and mingle while bidding on items during the silent and live auctions. Items ranged from a trip to Ocean City, Maryland to gift certificates discover York to Orioles’ tickets. New this year was a Wall of Wines raffle where everyone took home a bottle of wine and one lucky guest won a tour, tasting and overnight stay at Springfield Manor Winery, Distillery & Brewery in Frederick, MD.

We raised over $72,000 to help Hospice & Community Care provide compassion and comfort to help patients and families live better at end of life. The event was a true example of the impact our community can make when we all come together.


Thank you to our sponsors!
