“We tried to offer food that stayed in the theme of Valentine’s Day and Harley-Davidson,” Skolnik said. 

There will also be beer tasting by Great Lakes Brewery and wine tastings by Heidelberg Distributing.  

The location of the event will also offer a unique setting that many attendees may have never visited.

“This is a really fun and different venue,” Skolnik said. “You normally would not attend an event like this at this location, which makes it even more fun.”

A silent auction will also be held throughout the evening that guests are invited to bid on. Some of the items that will be auctioned off include gift baskets from Great Lakes Brewery, Put-In-Bay gift baskets and one of kind bracelets from an area jeweler. 

All proceeds from the event will go towards Stein Hospice. 

“We appreciate the support of our community,” Skolnik said. “Without your support we would not be able to provide services to all our patients, regardless of weather they have the availability to pay.”

Tickets to the 2nd Annual Hogs and Kisses Valentine’s Day Dinner can be purchased at Mad River Harley-Davidson or at Stein Hospice. For more information, visit www.steinhospice.org.
