15th Annual “Matter of Taste” Wine Tasting & Charity Auction a Success!

All Care VNA & Hospice hosted its 15th annual “Matter of Taste” wine tasting and charity auction at Danversport Yacht Club on Thursday, November 17th, raising close to $80,000 for hospice programs and services.  Guests enjoyed an unlimited and delicious wine tasting, savory appetizers, and a sumptuous buffet as they browsed unique raffle items, delightful silent auctions, enjoyed exciting live bidding, not to mention trying their luck at the “You Can Make a Difference $10,000 Raffle.” Only 200 chances were sold for this raffle of a lifetime and the lucky winner was a Boston public school teacher who was in attendance for the exciting drawing at the end of the evening. USI Insurance Services New England served as distinguished Benefactor Sponsor of this 15th annual event while Salem Five Charitable Foundation returned as the esteemed Title Sponsor. Over 250 local businesses and organizations contributed to make this evening a success!

For over 100 years,...
