Twenty-Fifth Annual Poinsettia Ball

You are invited to “Ring in the Holidays” as the community comes together to celebrate the silver anniversary of the Poinsettia Ball. Long term partners for this charity event, presenting sponsors R. H. Foster Energy, LLC and Machias Savings Bank are pleased to invite you to attend the Twenty-Fifth Annual Poinsettia Ball. Silver bells will be ringing at this year’s event, held on Saturday, December 3, 2016, at the Ellsworth Ramada.  Red poinsettias will adorn the 16 foot 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 benefit new three-dimensional mammographic imaging technology at Maine Coast Memorial Hospital. Research has shown 3D digital mammography finds significantly more invasive breast cancers and reduces the number of false alarms. Doctors are calling it a significant breakthrough in the battle against breast cancer. Almost $800,000 has been raised from the Poinsettia Ball since inception, with all of those funds benefitting patient care at MCMH.
Tickets and sponsorships are available online (see below) or by calling 664-5311 ext. 2305.

Please call the same number if you are interested in volunteering for this event.
