This is one of the most enjoyable events of the year. The day occured with

food and wine that you can handle and spectacular items to bid on.
Friends old and new recently celebrated 20 years of Sunday by the Sea in Palos Verdes Estates at the elegant seaside estate of Carolyn and Julian Elliott. The annual wine and food gala raised over $200,000 to support the programs and services of Providence TrinityCare Hospice and its pediatric palliative care and hospice program, TrinityKids Care. Over 60 premiere restaurants and wineries from around Southern California tempted guests with delicious morsels and fabulous libations. Over 800 guests sampled fabulous food and wine, bid on silent and live auction items and had the opportunity to win a week long Hawaiian get-a-away.
At the event Barbara Roberts, Executive Director, Providence TrinityCare Hospice Foundation gave guests a glimpse into the organization’s future. “We were delighted to use this occasion to share the wonderful news with our supporters that we recently received the largest gift in our organization’s history, $2.5 million, from the trust of the late M. Douglas. We’ll use his gift to create a center of excellence in palliative care, which is taking a growing role in the arena of in-home healthcare delivery for both adults and children. We’re incredibly fortunate to have a staff with expertise that is recognized across the nation and we’re grateful to the many people who continue to support this important work.” Jacky Glass, event founder and current Community Ambassador for Providence TrinityCare Hospice added, “Our vision, created 20 years ago is truly becoming a reality.”

Proceeds from this event directly benefit the programs of Providence TrinityCare Hospice such as: Patient Care Assistance, TrinityKids Care (the only dedicated pediatric program for infants and children in the region) Necessities of Life, In-Patient Hospice Suites, and The Gathering Place (a community bereavement center).
