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.

|Hike and 5K Run for Hospice|
Hamilton Hike — September 2014
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.
Every 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.

Kenwood Country Club
The winter blues will give way to lush fairways and richly colored greens as the 13th annual Hospice of Cincinnati and Fernside Summertime Classic gets underway. The event once again will feature a dinner and silent auction Sunday night followed by golf Monday afternoon at the Kenwood Country Club’s two courses.
Last year’s Summertime Classic was host to nearly 300 guests on Sunday evening and 200 golfers on Monday - all in support of Fernside, an affiliate of Hospice of Cincinnati that supports children and families through grief. Many opportunities exist for corporate/individual sponsorships, dinner tickets, team play and volunteering. Come out and help Hospice of Cincinnati celebrate 13 years of support to Fernside!
