Fine food, perfectly paired wine, rock and roll, passionate people and a view of the Atlantic Ocean – these elements marked the record-setting fundraiser event, Taste of Finer Things, for the campaign to build the Macky and Pam Stansell House of Coastal Hospice at the Ocean.

More than 243 supporters celebrated at the Harrison’s Harbor Watch Restaurant in Ocean City and helped raise over $34,000 to support the Stansell House. Our new hospice residence is expected to open in early 2019.

Fundraising events such as Taste of Finer Things are an important piece to supporting the services of Coastal Hospice as the events provide an opportunity for the community to be a part of our efforts to better aid our neighbors with their end of life journey.

We are especially grateful for our volunteer committee members who spent countless hours planning and hosting this important event including Macky Stansell, Stephanie Meehan, Pam Buckley, Karen Cramer, Cathy Donovan, Madalaine How, Marsha Howarth, Elaine Jacobs, Donna Leiner and Gayle Widdowson.

We sincerely appreciate the restaurants that brought their creative culinary talents to the event including: Atlantic Hotel, Barn 34, Captain’s Table, Crabs to Go, Desserts by Rita, Embers/Blu, Harrison’s Harbor Watch, Hooked, Macky’s Bayside Bar & Grill, OC Wasabi, Seacrets, Sunset Grille, Sweet Disposition, Touch of Italy and Wockenfuss.

We also thank our sponsors for making this event possible including Whiting-Turner, The Hobbit Restaurant, The Bonfire, and Cullen M. Burke Esq.

The generosity of our community is inspiring.
