Community Events

These third-party community events are planned, advertised and executed by people in our local community who wish to support the mission of Calvert Hospice.

Some examples of such events include:

The Poker Run for Calvert Hospice

For twelve years, Chris Bowen and Heather Scott have hosted the Poker Run in June to raise thousands of dollars in support of Calvert Hospice. Participants pay a fee to travel throughout Southern Maryland by motorcycle or car, making stops at different venues to pick up a card for ‘their hand’ and finish up back at their starting point. Participants end their ride with a party, enjoying music by DJ Rick, great food, and door prizes. The 2018 Poker Run was held on September 22, 2018. For more information on the 2019 event, contact Chris Bowen or Heather Scott at

Unique Boutique

The 2018 Unique Boutique was held November 10 and 11 at Calvert High School. The event features fine art and a selection of crafts, all for purchase in time for the holiday season. Calvert Hospice had its own table of donated artwork and crafts for sale. We want to thank everyone who came and supported hospice in 2018. We hope to see you at next year’s event!

Asbury Solomons Mardi Gras

Each year, the residents of Asbury Solomons host a Mardi Gras to raise funds for Calvert Hospice. Attendees are treated to authentic Louisiana cuisine, swing music from the Chesapeake Swing Band, and an evening full of fun with friends. The 2018 event was held on February 10. We would like to thank all of the residents who attended and gave generously to Calvert Hospice!

Sneade’s Ace Home Center

From December 22 – 24, 2018, shoppers at Sneade’s Ace Home Centers in both Owings and Lusby had the opportunity to “give a gift that counts.” Shoppers who donated $5 or more to Calvert Hospice received 20% off regularly priced merchandise! The amount raised in 2018 was $10,000! Thank you for your generosity.
