Friends and family of young sailing enthusiast, Olivia Constants, hosted the 2nd annual gourmet dinner on Saturday, May 10th to benefit the foundation established in her name.
The evening of music and dining was held at Mears Marina in Annapolis with more than 17 restaurants providing special dishes for the 200 or so guests. The restaurants included Ruth’s Chris, Paladar, Brio Tuscan Grille, Bertucci’s, Mike’s Crab House, Annapolis Yacht Club, Ken’s Creative Kitchen, Boatyard Bar and Grill, Italian Market, P.F. Chang’s, Crab Cake Café, Double T Diner, Main Ingredient, and California Tortilla. Live music was provided by the Dan Haas Band. Buck Distributing and Finlandia were beverage sponsors and additional sponsors were McNamee Hosea, Annapolis Subaru, and Liz and Mark Ordan.

The event raised more than $30,000 to support the Olivia Constants Foundation's scholarship fund and grant programs, particularly in conjunction with Anne Arundel County schools’ anti-bullying programs.

The Olivia Constants Foundation was established to honor the memory of Olivia Constants and to allow the community to become a part of her caring spirit. Olivia died in 2011, as the result of a sailing accident. For more information, visit
