Taste of Howard County benefits inpatient hospice care in Columbia, MD

Taste of Howard County 2019

Go All In For Gilchrist

Sunday, October 20, 2019
Turf Valley
5 p.m.

Co-chairs: Sherri Collins-Witzke and Gus Carky

Featuring casino table games like blackjack, poker, roulette and craps for a chance to win incredible prizes!

Plus, enjoy delicious food from over 20 of Howard County’s best restaurants.

Proceeds benefit Gilchrist Center Howard County, our 10-bed acute inpatient center in Columbia. Because insurance does not cover the full cost of patient care, and because Gilchrist accepts every patient, regardless of ability to pay–We Need Your Help.
