Talbot Hospice Celebrates La Dolce Vita October 21


Talbot Hospice will celebrate la dolce vita with a black tie benefit on October 21st at 6 pm at The Talbot Country Club.  Guests will be transported to “An Evening in Italy,” thanks to the creative vision of co-chairs Hynda Dalton and Sheila Monahan.

A Night in Italy co-chairs (l-r) Sheila Monahan, Hynda Dalton with Talbot Hospice Executive Director Vivian Dodge.

The benefit will feature a seated gourmet dinner, Italian wines and desserts, open bar, and dancing to the show-stopping band, Nightlife.  The chairwomen will transform the Talbot County Club into a visual extravaganza that echoes the sparkling sophistication of Milan.   Tickets are $200/person, $100 tax deductible.  Proceeds will benefit Talbot Hospice patients and families.

“At Talbot Hospice we are all about ‘celebrating life’ and making the most of every day,” said Sheila Monahan who is chair of the Development Committee and co-chair of the fundraiser. “We thought it was only fitting to bring that element into our event as well.”

NightLife Band is a super high-energy performance dance band that specializes in current music, as well as the best music from the 40s to present. This lively, choreographed show band is just as much fun to watch as it is to dance to.  Be prepared for their “wow” factor! The seated dinner will include an heirloom tomato and burrata tart, filet of beef, polenta cake with tomato and caper relish and glazed broccolini with salsa verde.  Dessert will include Italian cheeses, fruit, assorted Italian pastries, Grappa and Limoncello.  Seating is limited.
