CHESTER  Estate Treasures, an upscale resale shop in Chester, will host an art auction to benefit Compass Regional Hospice from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 22, at Cascia Vineyards, 1200 Thompson Creek Road, Stevensville.


Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Tickets are limited to this exclusive event, so purchase tickets soon.

An affiliate of Compass Regional Hospice, Estate Treasures has been raising money for hospice care and grief support provided in Queen Anne’s County for more than 25 years. The proceeds from the sale will benefit those Queen Anne’s County residents who need hospice care or grief support services.


During the auction, guests will enjoy light refreshments and a complimentary glass of Cascia Vineyards wine. A cash bar will feature a full menu of fine wines produced by the vineyard. Guests must be at least 21 years old to attend.


The event will feature live and silent auctions, where guests will bid on a variety of art, including watercolors and prints, and some will have been created and signed by local artists whose work reflects scenes from the Eastern Shore.


All art work has been donated to Estate Treasures and Cascia Vineyards is offering their waterfront facility so that proceeds from the auction can benefit the work of Compass Regional Hospice.


Compass Regional Hospice takes care of infants and children, as well as adults in need of its programs, which in addition to hospice care include grief counseling and support groups, and patients are never turned away based on an inability to pay for services. Because of this, there is a $1.4 million funding gap between what the organization receives in service payments and the actual cost of care provided.


For more information about volunteering with Estate Treasures, which is run entirely through volunteer leadership, contact Courtney Williams, manager of volunteer and professional services, Compass Regional Hospice, at 443-262-4112 or
