The annual Taste of Finer Things will take place on Wednesday, April 11 at 6:30 p.m. at Harrison’s Harbor Watch in Ocean City, and reservations are now being accepted. The event benefits the campaign to build The Macky & Pam Stansell House of Coastal Hospice at the Ocean.
The event showcases the food offerings of 16 local restaurants and also offers wines that pair with the appetizers. Participating restaurants include Atlantic Hotel, Barn 34, Captain’s Table, Crabs to Go, Desserts by Rita, DRY 85, Embers/BLU, Harrison’s Harbor Watch, Hooked, Macky’s Bayside Bar & Grill, OC Wasabi, Seacrets, Sunset Grille, Sweet Disposition, Touch of Italy, and Wockenfuss.
Lauren Glick will provide live entertainment.
“This wonderful evening is a chance for lovers of fine food and fine wine to sample some of the best the Ocean City area has to offer and know they’re supporting a great cause – Coastal Hospice,” Stephanie Meehan, chairperson for the event, said. “The setting overlooking the Ocean City inlet at sunset couldn’t be more perfect.”
The event raises funds for the capital campaign to build The Macky & Pam Stansell House of Coastal Hospice at the Ocean, a hospice residence and outreach center coming to Ocean Pines. Over the years, Taste of Finer Things has raised more than $190,000 to fund the campaign to build the facility.
Reservations are $100 per person and can be made at CoastalHospice.org/Taste. The event sold out quickly in both 2016 and 2017, so early reservations are encouraged.
The Taste of Finer Things committee members are Meehan, Macky Stansell, Pam Buckley, Karen Cramer, Cathy Donovan, Madalaine How, Marsha Howarth, Elaine Jacobs, Donna Leiner, and Gayle Widdowson.
