Twenty-Fourth Annual Poinsettia Ball

Lists have been made and they’ve been “checked” twice, for the 24th annual Maine Coast Memorial Hospital Poinsettia Ball. R. H. Foster and Machias Savings Bank come together to wish you a happy holiday season, wrapped up in a tartan bow.  This year’s event will be held on Saturday, December 5th, at the Ellsworth Ramada.  Red poinsettias will adorn the 16ft tall tree that gives this event its name, and the meal will be presented by Chipper’s Restaurant and Catering.
Proceeds from this year’s event will directly support patient care at the Mary Dow Center.  The Mary Dow Center provides treatment for cancer patients as well as other conditions helped by infusion therapy.  The center is also home to Maine Coast Memorial Hospital’s cardiologist and Wound Center.
Once again this year, for ten dollars 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 J&B Atlantic Company, 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 5th – the winner does not have to be present to win.
