Gallery: Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund Wine in Winter Event
Hundreds of residents enjoyed food and spirits from more than 40 local restaurants in support of the Ambler organization, which advocates for families with children who have illnesses and disabilities.
The Sixth Annual Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund Wine in Winter event was held on Feb. 1 at Normandy Farms Conference Center in Blue Bell, bringing together hundreds of supporters for the non-profit, which helps families caring for ill and disabled children.
Guests enjoyed the fare from more than 40 restaurants from throughout Pennsylvania, and were able to participate in a silent auction and raffles for unique and exclusive items and experiences, including a Walt Disney World package, dinner with a local food critic, and more.
Presenting restaurants included Blackfish from Conshohocken, Cantina Feliz from Whitemarsh, Forest & Main Brewing Co., The Farmer’s Daughter, Mina Cucina Rustica, Origlio Beverages, 10 Bella, Joseph Ambler Inn, William Penn Inn, Saffron, Yuengling, the Philadelphia Distilling Co. and Ooka.
The Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund, headquartered in Ambler, advocates for families with seriously ill, physically and cognitively challenged, and severely injured children nationwide through information and education, and provides financial assistance for needs not covered by insurance to families whose children are living in or cared for in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, or Delaware.
Peggy and Joe Dolan created the fund after their daughter, Kelly Anne, lost her battle with a rare form of Leukemia in 1976. They learned how the serious illness of a child could affect an entire family, and the fund helps families deal with the illness or disability of a child.
