Wine & Cheese Event

Wine, Cheese, Chocolate, & More!

Hilo Medical Center Foundation’s signature annual fundraising event is the Wine, Cheese, Chocolate, & MORE! Where we honor healthcare workers for all that they do for our East Hawaii Community and welcome new providers in an effort to help them build new friendships and connect them to our beautiful island home.
Due to COVID-19, the 2020 event was held virtually via ZOOM. Participants purchased packages that were picked up via contactless drive-up at the Foundation office. Each package included a bottle of red wine, a bottle of white wine, a variety of cheeses and chocolates to take home and enjoy during the live ZOOM wine tasting event! In previous years, the event was held at the Hilo Hawaiian Hotel where guests could sample many varieties of wines, cheese and chocolate in person along with physician waiters serving pupus for tips, a lively cheese auction and a silent auction. We look forward to returning to in person to this wonderful event.
