More than 250 guests ignored the threat of a summer storm on Friday, August 22nd, when they filled Fisherman’s Crab Deck in Grasonville for the sold out Hospice of Queen Anne’s Sunset Celebration.

Supporters of Hospice of Queen Anne’s enjoyed a picnic-style buffet and a participated in good-natured bidding for a selection of silent auction items that included fine jewelry, art, gift baskets and vacation getaways. The Pick-a-Crab game of chance and 50/50 raffle boosted the fundraising proceeds to more than $31,000.

“We thank all of our sponsors, auction donors, volunteers and staff for supporting this event," says Heather Guerieri, executive director of Hospice of Queen Anne’s. "The generosity of so many people makes it possible for us to provide hospice services and grief support to people of all ages regardless of their ability to pay.”
