OCEAN CITY, MD – Oct. 16, 2017 – Reservations are now being taken for “Brews & Bites,” the second annual fundraiser and craft beer festival in Ocean City. Proceeds from Brews & Bites will help build The Macky & Pam Stansell House at Coastal Hospice at the Ocean. Reservations can be made at or by calling 410-742-8732.

The Embers restaurant at 2305 Philadelphia Ave. is hosting the party on Thursday, November 9 from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. Admission is $50 and includes beer tastings by local craft breweries, small plates from local restaurants, live music by Blake Haley, and a raffle auction.

For a second year, the event is spearheaded by local leaders Cole Taustin, owner of The Embers/Blu, and Kellie Meehan, assistant at Mann Properties. Their goal is to encourage entrepreneurship among their peers.

“We wanted to create an event that would be interesting to the area’s young leaders. This is a great chance to get involved in supporting our community and encourage younger people to start early,” Taustin said.

Meehan agreed. “The Macky & Pam Stansell House at Coastal Hospice at the Ocean will be an important asset to the health of our area and is a great cause for this event.”

The Macky & Pam Stansell House at Coastal Hospice at the Ocean will be a hospice residence and community outreach center in Worcester County. It will be a home for hospice patients who lack an able caregiver. It will also be the site for community-based palliative care, counseling, grief support, and community wellness programs.
