To All Who Made the 22nd Chefs' Gala a Success!


Maine Coast Memorial Hospital’s 22nd annual Chefs’ Gala was held Saturday night at the Ellsworth Ramada, drawing a crowd of 416 ticketholders and some 30 to 40 volunteers.

Though final numbers were still being calculated Tuesday, the hospital projected the event raised close to $60,000. That money will benefit the hospital’s Breast Clinic and provide mammogram scholarships for women in need. Money raised through the auction and raffle will be used to purchase lymphedema sleeves.
Thank you to all who attended, volunteered and donated. Photos will be posted as soon as possible. All proceeds of the Gala benefit the Breast Clinic and Mammogram Scholarships.

Reg and Phyllis Young (above) were dressed to reflect the event’s nautical theme, with Reg looking like Thurston Howell III from “Gilligan’s Island.
