One of the tastiest charity events of the year was held on July 18 at Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort: The 32nd Annual Hoag Summer Fest, presented by Hoag Hospital Foundation and its 552 Club.

More than 1,500 guests enjoyed live music and tastings from 40 restaurants, most from Newport Beach, Hoag officials explained in a July 25 press release.

The event was a sellout and raised more than $225,000 for Hoag, according to officials, with help from this year’s event Chairs Cheryl and Mark Hardtke.
