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

Taste of Howard County 2018

Merriment in Masquerade

Thank you for another successful event, raising $225,000 for Gilchrist Center Howard County! 

Congratulations to our raffle winners:

Jacquelyn Kelly
Kiley Moore
Susan Donahue

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.

For questions, contact Julie Kolankiewicz at 443-849-8245.
