For the 23rd Annual Maine Coast Memorial Hospital Poinsettia Ball R. H. Foster, Machias Savings Bank, and WABI TV 5 come together to wish you a Merry and Bright holiday season. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, December 6th, at the Ellsworth Ramada. Albert and Barbara Harmon and Witham Family Properties will supply the poinsettias to erect the spectacular 16ft tall tree, this year made of nearly 500 pink poinsettias. The meal will be presented by Chipper’s Restaurant and Catering.

The proceeds from this year’s event will go towards the purchase of a new anesthesia machine. Anesthesia machines are designed to provide an accurate and continuous supply of medical gases mixed with an accurate concentration of anesthetic vapor, and deliver this to the patient at a safe pressure and flow. The hospital currently has three anesthesia machines, and the new machine will replace the oldest instrument currently in use.

New this year, for $10 anyone may purchase a raffle ticket and have the opportunity to win a $1,000 shopping spree compliments of four, downtown Ellsworth businesses. The lucky winner will shop at The Grasshopper Shop, Rooster Brother, Pyramid Studios, and Cadillac Mountain Sports. Tickets may be purchased at the hospital or any of the participating shops before the event, as well as at the event on the evening of December 6th.

Tickets and sponsorships are available or by calling 664-5311 and asking for extension 2030.
