wine dinner soiree

This year's Annual Fundraiser Event was the Wine Dinner Soirée held on Saturday, March 2, 2024 at the Hershey Country Club.

The event began with a cocktail hour including hors d'oeuvres, champagne, premium cash bar, and a silent auction. AFF President, Vera Kolstrom, welcomed AFF members, guests and sponsors. Wine aficionado, Jeremy Boltz, and Jo Koller, Executive Chef, together described the dinner and wine pairing. Live music was provided throughout the evening by the Anthony Haubert duo. Medical student, Ian Hidinger, the 2023 AFF Global Outreach grant recipient, was the keynote speaker. He thanked the AFF for awarding him the maximum amount of $10,000 for vital cataract surgery equipment for Ghana.

Our annual fundraiser event would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of the committee: Vera Kolstrom, Eileen Ketcherick, Shwetal Vyas, Barb Kilheffer, Behjat Noori, Debbie Swinko, Patti Deutsch, Elan Jones, Deb White, Michelle Hoffer, and Heather Mahraj.
