Warm shades of burgundy, dazzling champagne touches, and a candlelit ambiance greeted more than 300 attendees at Ohio Valley Hospital’s 8th Annual “A Toast to the Community.” The wine tasting was held on October 12th at the Hyatt Regency Pittsburgh International Airport. The guest list included community members, members of the Hospital Board and Administration, and Hospital staff.
Guests had the opportunity to sample various Chairman’s Selection® Wines and unique craft beers. Some favorites of the night were Secondo Tempo Pinot Grigio Valdadige, Alexander Valley Vineyards Sin Zin Zinfandel, and Tenuta Di Burchino II Burchino Toscana. The craft brews on tap featured Southern Tier Brewing Company’s Cherry Cordial Imperial Stout and Rusty Rail Brewing Company’s Fool’s Gold Peanut Butter Hefeweizen. Cinnamon sugar-rimmed glasses of Elysian Brewing Company’s Night Owl Pumpkin Ale, paired with candy corn, was the perfect sweet fall treat! We were thrilled to have our School of Nursing and School of Radiography students volunteer at this event! They really helped make this year’s Wine Tasting a success.
The smooth jazz sounds of the Teddy Pantelas Trio set the mood for the evening. Along with wine and craft brew samples, guests enjoyed delicious, savory food stations and tried their luck on fabulous raffle prizes.
Along with Ohio Valley Hospital, Heritage Valley Health System and Gallagher Home Health Services served as Premier Sponsors for the event. Additional sponsorships from local organizations made “A Toast to the Community” quite the success! Top sponsors included the Ohio Valley Hospital Medical Staff, Telecare Corporation, Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, Ponder & Co., and Partners in Family Care.
Proceeds from this event will proudly fund community health initiatives, such as the Hospital’s annual Diabetes Day, 38th annual 5K, and Depression Screenings.
