Holy Cross Epicurean Escapade

 The Holy Cross Auxiliary is proud to present its 2013 “Epicurean Escapade: A Food & Wine Experience” on Saturday, April 13 to benefit the Dorothy Mangurian Comprehensive Women’s Center at Holy Cross HealthPlex. The culinary extravaganza begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Pier 66, 2301 SE 17th St. in Fort Lauderdale.

Epicurean Escapade will feature themed presentations of gourmet food and fine wine from around the world. Guests can indulge in full plates of delectable cuisine and generous pairings of a wide variety of wines while enjoying a fun evening of dancing and live musical entertainment.

“We are looking forward to an exciting culinary experience” said Doreen Koenig, who is serving as honorary chair of the event along with her husband, Keith Koenig. “Over the past 57 years, the Auxiliary has raised nearly $12 million to support the hospital’s community healthcare initiatives through fantastic events such as the Epicurean Escapade, and I’m sure this year’s event will be just as successful.”

Proceeds from the Epicurean Escapade event will benefit the new 55,000 square-foot Dorothy Mangurian Comprehensive Women’s Center at Holy Cross HealthPlex, a one-stop, state-of-the-art facility, located at 1000 NE 56 St. in Fort Lauderdale, where women receive excellent treatment in a caring environment. The $15 million Dorothy Mangurian Comprehensive Women’s Center was built entirely through philanthropy, including $1 million from 200 women in the community who each pledged $5,000 as lifetime, founding members of the Girlfriend’s Club in support of the Dorothy Mangurian Comprehensive Women’s Center.

Sponsorship opportunities for the Holy Cross Auxiliary’s 2013 Epicurean Escapade are still available. Tickets are $225 per person. For more information, call 954-229-8562 or email
