 A Gourmet Sensation
A Gourmet Sensation Fine Dining & Wine
August 23, 2014
Duke Energy Convention Center

More than 1,000 guests sipped, tasted and grooved at last year’s Gourmet Sensation, which was held at the Duke Energy Convention Center.

"The popularity of the event made it possible for us to move to a new larger venue," Hospice of Cincinnati President & CEO Sandra Lobert said. "It's nice to see an event like this grow to be so popular because it truly is for a great cause."

Since the event was founded, more than 240 chefs have lent their expertise and talents to create over 8,000 different dishes served with 13,000 bottles of wine to more than 15,000 patrons. As a result, over $3 million has been raised in support of Hospice of Cincinnati's very important mission: to create the best possible and most meaningful end-of-life experience for all who need care and support in our community.

A Gourmet Sensation 2014 will feature more than 20 of the nation's finest chefs, each creating their favorite dishes served in a dinner-by-the-bite style. Each dish is paired with a signature wine, and the addition of craft beer, all courtesy of Heidelberg Distributing Co., Wine Trends and Ohio Valley Wine & Beer. Headlining 2013's chef roster was The Palace Restaurant's executive chef Jose Salazar, voted Midwest Top Chef by Food & Wine Magazine.

Following the main event is the "A Gourmet Sensation –
YP Late Night," an event created for Cincinnati's Young Professionals. Late Night Bites will be prepared by the International Culinary School at the Art Institute of Ohio Cincinnati and served alongside signature wines and beers.

 Hike and 5K Run for Hospice

Cincinnati Hike & 5K Run — October 2014

The Hike for Hospice of Cincinnati and Hike for Hospice of Hamilton are a special set of events giving participants the opportunity to race or hike in memory or in honor of a loved one while helping Hospice of Hamilton and Hospice of Cincinnati continue its high quality of care for terminally ill patients and their families.

Hike for Hospice PhotoEvery fall for more than 30 years, rain or shine, Greater Cincinnatians donning rain slickers or sunglasses have traversed a 2.5-mile route through Blue Ash to raise funds and awareness for Hospice of Cincinnati.

The 5K Run is a USATF sanctioned scenic, flat, out and back course that starts and finishes at Hospice of Cincinnati.   5K Race categories include Male & Female 14 & under, 15-18, 19-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-69, 70 & over. 
Here are the 2013 5K Run results

Proceeds from the event help fund programs and services at Hospice of Cincinnati. In July 1998, Hospice of Hamilton began a similar hike to support its hospice programs. Consider forming a Hike team with family and friends, at work or church, or with your favorite organization.
