Kenwood Country Club
Dinner & Auction - Sunday, May 17th, 2015
Golf Tournament
- Monday, May 18th, 2015

Soon the winter blues will give way to lush fairways and richly colored greens as the 14th annual Hospice of Cincinnati and Fernside Summertime Classic gets underway.  The event will once again feature a dinner and silent auction Sunday night followed by a golf scramble on Monday on the Kenwood Country Club's two courses.  

Save the Date for a Great Time and a Hole Lot of Good

Last year's Summertime Classic was host to nearly 300 guests on Sunday and 200 golfers on Monday - all to support Fernside, an affiliate of Hospice of Cincinnati that supports children and families through grief.  Many opportunities exist for corporate and individual sponsorships, dinner tickets, team play and volunteering.  Please plan to come out to help Hospice of Cincinnati celebrate 14 years of support to Fernside! For more information, please contact Kimberly Best at 513-865-1621.

 A Gourmet Sensation
A Gourmet Sensation Fine Dining & Wine
August 2015
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 features 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.
