“The Heart of It All” Experience

Wine Taste raised a record amount of support for patients! Proceeds help purchase medical supplies, medications, equipment, family grief support for patients in Kootenai, Shoshone and Benewah counties. Proceeds also help the Schneidmiller House expand by 5,000 square feet to accommodate our high demand for specialized clinical care. Read how much was raised and get full details, here!

Guests commented that the Community Building transformed beautifully into an elegant and exciting atmosphere. A few new caterers were a welcomed part of the menu. “The food this year was amazing!” commented Sheri Isch, Hospice board member. Our distributors brought crowd-favorite pours and hand-selected new options for both beer and wines.

Many of our community’s well established clinicians and philanthropists participated in Hospice Wine Taste and directly helped ensure that all  community members have access to expert hospice care and grief support.

We send an exuberant “thank you!” to our guests who showed their dedication to the Mission, to our Presenting Sponsor, Kootenai Health, to our event sponsors, caterers, distributors, and contributing local businesses. The response we received brought us to tears. Your trust in our Hospice care fuels us each day, thank you!

“We just can’t believe the amount of support that people gave for the Schneidmiller House expansion!”
