The flavors of the Italian countryside come to Connecticut on Friday, May 29 at the “Evening in Tuscany” fundraising gala for Regional Hospice and Home Care Center for Comfort Care & Healing, to be held from 7 to 11:30 pm at The Waterview in Monroe.

“Old Italy will inspire new aspirations as we transform the ballroom into a Tuscan garden party, complete with a specially created wine pairing and several other surprises,” said Cynthia E. Roy, MS, LCSW, CHA, president and CEO of Regional Hospice & Home Care. “This is a one-of-a-kind, five-course, Tuscan-inspired menu that has never before been served at The Waterview.”

The Waterview executive chef, Nino Martino, will prepare his Tuscan creations, while Aaron Swart, Regional  Hospice resident chef, will make a Tuscan zuppa course, in keeping with his comfort-food focus cooking for patients, families and staff at the hospice’s new Center for Comfort Care & Healing.
