Our second annual Wine Tasting Gala went off with a bang this past Saturday, October 18 at John Hopkins University’s Rockville Campus. With the rich rhythms of Charlie Plunkett in the background, more than 100 of our closest friends and family enjoyed the flavorful wines, delectable foods and delightful conversation. Many thanks to our event sponsors whose generosity made the evening possible: Rex Smith of Hearts & Homes for Youth, Apex Home Loans, Kathy Lally, Gordon Architects, GPN Titles, June Linowitz and Howard Eisner, and Cady Susswein.
Our Silent Auction was also fully stocked with items ranging from mosaic light boxes to multi-media paintings, jewelry, sports paraphernalia, weekend getaways, self-pampering and more.
