to all of our sponsors, restaurants, volunteers and staff for the amazing support that made the 30th Taste of Howard County a huge success. We raised $255,000 to benefit Gilchrist Center Howard County! Congratulations to everyone involved for your hard work, dedication and commitment to Gilchrist and the hospice mission. 

Our $10,000 raffle winner Lillian Aida Barbera, as you see was a very happy person when she found out that she won.
