This event raises more than $1 million annually to support vital mental health care and services for residents on both sides of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.

 

In 2019, Claudia was honored as Volunteer of the Year by Chesapeake Charities.

 

She has been on the Bosom Buddies Charities Board since 2016. This organization is very near and dear to Claudia's heart. Her mom passed away 14 years ago from cancer and most recently her mother-in- law is a breast cancer survivor. Unfortunately many of us have been touched, one way or another, by this horrible disease.

 

She is honored to be a part of such a wonderful group of ladies who are making a difference in their community through Bosom Buddies Charities’ mission, which is to promote breast cancer awareness, encourage early detection, support treatment and celebrate healing.

Director

Jennifer Hultman DiDonato, grew up in Western Pennsylvania and graduated from Penn State University in 1993 with a degree in Elementary Education. Upon graduating, she began her career teaching on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Through mutual friends, Jennifer met Jim DiDonato, a “local” who graduated from QACHS.  Soon after they married, they chose Jim’s hometown of Queenstown to begin their new life together.

While Jim was busy growing his family’s company, Mallard Construction, Jennifer was busy working as a full-time mother as they welcomed the arrival of their twins, Isabella and Pasquale. Once the twins started kindergarten, Jen decided it was time to begin a new career and became a small local business owner by opening The Winery in 2008. Today, the business located in Chester, MD, is one of Queen Anne’s County’s most popular wine and spirits shops.

In 2021, with her twins in college, Jennifer decided it was time to follow her mother-in-law Angelina DiDonato’s path when asked to serve on the Board of Bosom Buddies Charities. Her mother-in-law was one of the original members of the Bosom Buddies Ball Committee that came together in 2007.  Over the years, Jennifer admired Angie’s dedication in helping her dear friend Susan Ponchock take this great idea and turn it into a successful charitable organization that benefits such an important cause.  Jennifer is honored to contribute to the continuing success of this is exceptional organization.
