The second annual Taste of Hope drew 300 people to the Wings of Hope hangar on Saturday, October 6, for an afternoon of noshing on tasty samples from Vito’s in the Valley, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Zen Thai & Japanese Cuisine, El Burro Loco, Mayuri, Mango, Double G Ham, Viviano’s Festa Italiano, Hearth Room Café, The Croquetterie and Smoothie King. Granite City Food & Brewery, Urban Chestnut and O’Fallon Brewery offered craft beer, and Major Brands supplied the wine. Best of all, the event raised $15,000 to support our international health projects, including lifesaving surgeries in Zambia. Thank you to sponsors Joe-K Used Cars, MBM Wealth Consultants, First National Bank-Staunton, Ben & Betty Adams and presenting sponsor Dierbergs!
