Epilepsy Foundation Toasting Hope Tasting Event

The Epilepsy Foundation’s 11th Annual Toasting Hope Tasting Event was held at The Townsend Hotel in Birmingham. The event included wine, beer, and spirits tastings. Chefs of The Townsend Hotel provided custom food pairings for the strolling-style affair. The evening, which raised $152,000, featured live music from the Killer Flamingos, as well as a live and silent auction. Monies raised will fund programs and services, such as Here for You Helpline, Seizure Smart Trainings, and Camp Discovery.
