October 25, 2012

Gilchrist Hospice Care raised more than $218,000 to help pay for uncompensated care at its 27th annual Taste & Auction of Howard County.

The money will benefit patients at Gilchrist Center Howard County, which opened last year.

Nearly 500 people attended the event Sunday at Turf Valley that featured food tastings from 23 Howard County restaurants that included Aida Bistro, Clyde's of Columbia and Tersiguel's.

There also was a live auction and a silent auction for such items as gourmet wines, gift baskets, Ravens tickets and a trip to Hawaii.
