All Care VNA & Hospice hosted its 15th annual “Matter of Taste” wine tasting and charity auction at Danversport Yacht Club on Thursday, November 17th, raising close to $80,000 for hospice programs and services.  Guests enjoyed an unlimited and delicious wine tasting, savory appetizers, and a sumptuous buffet as they browsed unique raffle items, delightful silent auctions, enjoyed exciting live bidding, not to mention trying their luck at the “You Can Make a Difference $10,000 Raffle.” Only 200 chances were sold for this raffle of a lifetime and the lucky winner was a Boston public school teacher who was in attendance for the exciting drawing at the end of the evening.

USI Insurance Services New England served as distinguished Benefactor Sponsor of this 15th annual event while Salem Five Charitable Foundation returned as the esteemed Title Sponsor.

Over 250 local businesses and organizations contributed to make this evening a success! Proceeds from this event directly benefit All Care Hospice patients and families; without the support of generous sponsors and donors, providing care to these individuals in the over 60 communities All Care serves would not be possible.

The All Care Hospice mission enables those with life-limiting illnesses to receive the most compassionate medical care with personalized support for families through clinical resources, psycho/social support, bereavement services, and volunteer programs regardless of ability to pay; it is through successful fundraising events like “A Matter of Taste” that allow All Care to continue deliver the highest quality, cost effective homecare as they always have for over 100 years, providing peace of mind to patients and their families.

For over 100 years, All Care has been delivering the highest quality, cost-effective home health care to our patients in the 50 communities we serve throughout Greater Boston, the North Shore, and the Merrimack Valley.
