Twenty-Fifth Annual Poinsettia Ball

Maine Coast Memorial Hospital thanks everyone who contributed to the success of the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Poinsettia Ball, held on December 3, 2016.  The continued support of presenting sponsors R.H. Foster Energy and Machias Savings Bank, the generous funding from over 150 community donors, the countless hours worked by our over 130 volunteers, and the support of the Ellsworth Ramada make this event possible. 
A very special thank you to Albert and Barbara Harmon for sponsoring the magnificent poinsettia tree, Edith R. Dixon and Wallace Events for sponsoring the venue, Dr. and Mrs. Bruce Hamilton-Dick and Frenchman Bay Orthopedics for sponsoring the band, Jones, Kuriloff, & Sargent, LLC for sponsoring the champagne, and Witham Family Properties for sponsoring the decorations.
The twenty-fifth Annual Poinsettia Ball had 424 community members in attendance and raised nearly $60,000 in proceeds which will be used to support the purchase of new three-dimensional mammographic imaging technology for the MCMH Breast Clinic. We are thankful for the continued support from our community as we fulfill our mission of improving our communities with excellence in healthcare.

A complete list of contributors for this event can be seen below.  Photos from the event may be viewed on the Maine Coast Memorial Hospital Facebook page, and high resolution images of candid photos and posed photos may be purchased online. 

Thank you to all who made Maine Coast Memorial Hospital’s 25th Annual Poinsettia Ball a Success!
All proceeds benefit new three-dimensional mammographic imaging technology at  the MCMH Breast Clinic
