ELLSWORTH, Maine — Over the 22-year history of the Poinsettia Ball, more than half a million dollars raised have funded critical projects and medical equipment at Maine Coast Memorial Hospital.
R.H. Foster, Machias Savings Bank, and WABI TV 5 have come together to present a theme of ”Royal Holiday” at the 22nd annual Poinsettia Ball to be held 5:30-11 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7, at Ellsworth Ramada. Cocktails including a cash bar will begin at 5:30 p.m.; dinner at 7 p.m.; dancing until 11 p.m.
Albert and Barbara Harmon and Witham Family Properties will supply the poinsettias to erect a 16-foot-tall tree. The MCMH medical staff has stepped forward to underwrite the live music of the Tony Boffa Band for guests’ dancing pleasure and the meal will be presented by Chipper’s Restaurant and Catering.
For a $10 donation, all attendees will 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 J & B Atlantic.
