Taste of Friendship Returns

Taste of Friendship Returns

After four years, the Taste of Friendship fundraising event was brought back to life by Mercy Health Foundation Lorain. The fabulous festival of friendship, food and fun was held on Friday, September 8th at the Emerald Event Center in Avon, Ohio.

Over 300 attendees enjoyed the delicious offerings of 20 local restaurants and food and beverage purveyors including samples of wood-fired pizzas, gourmet chocolates, local beers, and more!

Guests also enjoyed a silent auction, bourbon tasting and the Dream Vacation Raffle, where one lucky winner was awarded the vacation of a lifetime to anywhere of their choosing.

The event raised over $110,000 to benefit the services and programs of Mercy Health Lorain.

This is what we were meant to do.
