More than 1,500 oenophiles will help uncork the cure to cancer on Sunday, Oct. 13 from 12-4 PM, as they celebrate the 28th Annual Wine Festival at Historic Dilworthtown.
As the county’s premier wine event, the festival features more than 100 wines, craft beers, sumptuous fare prepared by Montesano Bros. Catering and local food trucks, a silent auction, shopping opportunities in the Gallery of Artisan Vendors, live music, a Performance Car Show, and much more.
Proceeds from the wine festival benefit patients of The Abramson Cancer Center at Chester County Hospital and Penn Medicine at Home.
For friends and family members battling cancer, the cancer specialties at Chester County Hospital bring the world-class care of the Abramson Cancer Center close to home. As part of Penn Medicine, it offers the latest treatment protocols and cutting-edge technology. The outstanding medical staff, clinical team, nurse navigators, and hospital volunteers are known for providing the highest level of care and attention to the needs of our patients. And, the hospital works to give every patient every edge in their battle with cancer, including assistance for those who are uninsured and underinsured.
Outside of the hospital, patients continue to have access to the highest level of care through the services of Penn Medicine at Home (home health, hospice, palliative care, and Senior HealthLink services).
Back by popular demand is The Vince Brown Band. In its fourth year playing for the Wine Festival, The Vince Brown Band is a musical ensemble with decades of experience in the tristate area. Entertaining for private parties, local restaurants, festivals, and fundraisers is its specialty as the band’s experience enables it to adjust to the uniqueness of each event. The members of the group have many years of performance experience and use their talents to elevate the enjoyment of guests at each event.
The Wine Festival is organized by the Brandywine and Greystone Women’s Auxiliaries to the hospital. Click here or call 610-431-5054 to attend, volunteer, sponsor, or donate.
