Join us for the 15th Annual Gourmet & Grapes
presented by First Horizon
A Dazzling Four-Day Experience at The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort with Visionaries from the Culinary World While Supporting MUSC Hollings Cancer Center.
Since its inception in 2009, Gourmet & Grapes has raised more than $4.87 million for cancer research programs at Hollings Cancer Center. With stagnant federal funding, this contribution has proved invaluable in the cancer research conducted in South Carolina.
