Help the Women’s Auxiliary to Chester County Hospital crush cancer with a wine tour of local wineries, breweries, distilleries, and dining establishments throughout the month of October. Proceeds benefit The Abramson Cancer Center at Chester County Hospital.

For 28 years, the Crush Cancer Wine Festival at Dilworthtown Inn has been the county’s premier wine event.  The Women’s Auxiliary to Chester County Hospital has been hard at work reimagining the event with your health and safety in mind.

The result is the Crush Cancer Wine & Spirits Tour of Chester County, which features the best parts of the Wine Festival – great wine and spirits, delicious food, and beautiful scenery – and gives you a full month to enjoy them throughout the county. Your passport is your ticket to sip your way through Chester County while supporting patients living with cancer.

Your Crush Cancer Passport gives you access to tastings at more than 20 stops throughout Chester County valued at more than $200. Click here to purchase your passport and stay up to date about new participants as they join the tour.

Proceeds from the Crush Cancer Wine & Spirits Tour will sustain services offered for cancer patients. 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 patients. And the hospital works to give each patient every edge in his or her battle with cancer, including assistance for those who are uninsured and underinsured.

The Wine Festival is organized by the Greystone and Brandywine Branches of the Women’s Auxiliary to Chester County Hospital. To purchase your tour passport, sponsor, or donate, click here or call 610-570-5630.
