If there is a "sure-fire" don't miss charity event in the Utica-Rome area, it's Epicurean Delight.  The fundraiser for Hospice and Palliative Care, returns for the 28th year Hart's Hill in Whitesboro April 19 from 5 to 8.  Tad and Polly also return as this year's honorary chair couple. So why should you attend?

First and foremost, Hospice is great service that you hope you never need, but if a family member does, you're so thankful for their guidance and help.  Find out about their services for Oneida, Herkimer, eastern Madison Counties.

The second reason to go is a food delight like no other.  26 of CNY's finest restaurants preparing special dishes especially for Epicurean Delight all for just $40.  And while the restaurant's all battle for the coveted awards of the night, most are there because hospice has touched their lives.  There's also a number of auction items to bid on from jewelry, wine, home decor and more.

Entertainment will be provided by DVD the band with Vinnie Esposito and Dean Blask. Monk Rowe and Hamilton college student musicians will also be on hand.
