Annual wine festival to benefit cancer patients

Chester County Hospital is hoping area oenophiles will gather in Birmingham Township on Sunday, Oct. 9, to help put a cork in cancer.

Attendees stroll the grounds of the Dilworthtown Inn for the annual Wine Festival.

Chester County Hospital's 25th Annual Wine Festival is expected to draw more than 1,000 to the Dilworthtown Inn on Sunday, Oct. 9.

The 25th Annual Wine Festival at the Dilworthtown Inn is expected to attract more than 1,500 attendees, who will sample approximately 100 wines, craft beers, and cuisine prepared by Dilworthtown Inn chefs and local food trucks. In addition, a silent auction, shopping opportunities in the Gallery of Artisan Vendors, live music, a performance car show, and more will contribute to the popular event, a hospital press release said.

Proceeds from the wine festival benefit patients of the Cancer Program of Chester County Hospital and Neighborhood Health, which brings world-class care close to home. Through a partnership with the Penn Cancer Network, the program offers the latest treatment protocols and cutting-edge technology, including care outside the hospital through the services of Neighborhood Health (home health, hospice, private duty, and Senior HealthLink services), the release said.

The festival will run rain or shine from noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 9, on the grounds of the Dilworthtown Inn, 1390 Old Wilmington Pike, West Chester, Pa., 19382. General-admission tickets are $40 per person in advance or $45 at the door and include wine- and beer-tastings and access to shopping and entertainment. Food will be available for purchase at the Gourmet Food Tent.

Those who opt to purchase VIP tickets at $100 apiece will receive complimentary offerings from the Gourmet Food Tent as well access to the VIP tent, which will feature reserved seating, fruit and cheese, special wines, and more.

To encourage responsible drinking, a designated driver package for $200 includes five general- admission tickets and one free designated-driver ticket. The latter also includes lunch and a non-alcoholic beverage.

The Brandywine and Greystone Women’s auxiliaries to the hospital organize the annual wine festival. To attend, volunteer, sponsor, or donate, visit or call 610-431-5328.
