Saturday, October 3, promises to be an afternoon of food, fun and fabulous kitchens as the EMMC Auxiliary presents its 11th annual Kitchen Tour. This year’s tour included a mix of five residential kitchens and one commercial kitchen---all within the greater Bangor area.
Enjoy samples from Maine vendors including food, drink and other fine products which will be present at each kitchen.
Proceeds will benefit the new neonatal intensive care unit made possible by EMMC’s Remarkable Begins With You campaign.
Tickets will be $25 in advance and $30 on the day of the tour. Tickets will be available after Labor Day online and at the EMMC Gift Shop, Patrick’s Hallmark (Broadway Shopping Center), Rebecca’s Gift Shop, Miller Drug (Westgate), Huckleberries, Anthony John’s Day Spa and the Cianchette Building in Brewer.
The Auxiliary was established in 1893. Since its inception the Auxiliary has contributed over 3.3 million dollars to the hospital and its programs, ‘doing good work’, and directly supporting our community. Some of our most recent donations benefiting the community include:
· $350,000 pledge to the Pediatric Oncology and Hematology Services and EMMC’s Raish Peavey Haskell Children’s Cancer and Treatment Center ----fulfilled last year
· $4,000 for nursing scholarships yearly
· $13,500 to Children’s Miracle Network last year to benefit children in eastern and northern Maine
