D-F : Valentine's for a New Day Ball

February 04, 2009 - TRC

A Valentine’s For a New Day Ball to benefit Womancare/Aegis will be held on February 14, 2009, 8:00p.m. to 11:00 p.m. at the Penquis Higher Education Center, Mayo Street, Dover-Foxcroft.

Our first Valentine Ball was such a success ! Now we are enthusiastically anticipating our second annual gala. The Foxcroft Academy Student and Alumni Jazz Band are practicing their big band tunes under the direction of Shane Ellis, and dance classes have just begun at the Piscataquis Regional YMCA. Dance class participants will receive discounted tickets for the event so “foxtrot” on over to the “Y” to brush up on your dance steps.

Proceeds will support Womancare’s building campaign, “A New Day” as the organization prepares to move to their new location this spring. Womancare provides services to people affected by domestic abuse in the Pisacataquis County area. Tickets are $35 per person or $60 a couple and are available at Mr. Paperback in Dover-Foxcroft, Piscataquis Regional YMCA, Hudson Avenue Florist in Guilford, Indian Hill Trading Post in Greenville, and at Womancare on Winter Street in Dover-Foxcroft.

The benefit is underwritten by Hardwood Products Co. LLC – Puritan Medical Products Co. LLC, CA Dean Memorial Hospital, Maine Savings, and Pleasant River Lumber. Abel Blood’s Pub will provide a cash bar, delicious refreshments will include hot hors d’oeuvres and gourmet desserts, and a 50-50 raffle will be conducted. All proceeds support the building campaign. FMI call 564-8165.
