Coastal Hospice Benefit Announced

OCEAN CITY — The Real Housewives of Worcester County are at it again, but unlike their television counterparts, they are working to ensure another successful Taste of Finer Things to benefit Coastal Hospice at the Ocean.

The 2013 event will be held on April 4 at 6:30 p.m., again at Harrison’s Harbor Watch in Ocean City and is sponsored by the Atlantic General Hospital.

The party supports Coastal Hospice at the Ocean, a planned hospice residence that will provide medical support to patients in a home-like setting. Individual rooms will offer privacy, but also accommodate family members who wish to remain close by. Families and friends will have space to gather together and for individuals to find solitude. Coastal Hospice at the Ocean will also provide room for bereavement counseling and community education. The residence will be located in Berlin, serving, patients from Worcester, Wicomico, Somerset and Dorchester counties.

The “Real Housewives of Worcester County” are led by Committee Chair Stephanie Meehan, who, like many Coastal Hospice volunteers, have a personal connection to the cause and have a desire to spread the message to others.

“We’ve all had family members and friends who’ve used Coastal Hospice. This event is a great way to raise awareness in the community,” Meehan said.

Other committee members include Pam Buckley, Karen Cramer, Cathy Donovan, Marcia Hirsch, Madalaine How, Marsha Howarth, Elaine Jacobs, Donna Leiner, Macky Stansell and Gayle Widdowson.

Participating restaurants providing delicious food at the event will include Adolfo’s, Atlantic Hotel, the Bonfire, Crabs to Go, Embers, Harrison’s Harbor Watch, Hooked, Jules, Macky’s Bayside, OC Wasabi, The Palette, Seacrets, Sweet Disposition and Wockenfuss, with a variety of wine provided by Reliable Churchill. Performer Louis Wright will entertain for the evening.
