The Hope and Glory Inn’s vineyard, The Dog and Oyster Vineyard is pleased to report its fundraising drive to help the needy and hungry in six surrounding counties – Lancaster, Northumberland, Middlesex, Essex, Richmond, and Westmoreland, including Colonial Beach – was a great success. $3,000 was raised by donating $5 of every bottle sold to Healthy Harvest Food Bank who used these funds to provide an amazing 27,778 meals to the hungry in this pandemic.
Mark Kleinschmidt, CEO of Healthy Harvest, said “even in a pandemic, The Dog and Oyster has found a way to give; and we know those in need will be greatly appreciative. We value local business support and we are excited by their success.”
Peggy Patteson, co-owner of the vineyard and hotel, was quick to point out the vineyard’s fundraising success was enhanced as it went into Phases 2 and 3. Wine can be purchased by the flight (five wines to taste), glass, or bottle. Today’s venue offers charcuterie pairings Monday – Friday; and, Chef Stuart Tyson offers oysters – raw, roasted, and fried, soft shell crabs… on Saturdays and Sundays.
Kleinschmidt advised those in need should visit their website hhfb.org for a list of pantries and like their Facebook page for the most up-to-date pantry information.
