Health Beat: Anna Jaques to showcase community in contest entry

Bring your dancing shoes to Anna Jaques on Monday, Sept. 16, when the hospital will film the finale for its video entry in the Medline Pink Glove Dance Competition.

The hospital that wins the national competition will receive a $25,000 donation toward the breast cancer charity of its choice. Anna Jaques has chosen Amesbury-based Tough Warrior Princesses, which is a nonprofit committed to educating the public and providing support to local women and their families.

Anna Jaques has chosen “community” as the theme for its video and invites everyone to come to the hospital entrance at 25 Highland Ave., Newburyport, at 5:30 p.m. Participants are asked to wear jeans and pink T-shirts; pink gloves will be provided.

No dance experience is required, and anyone who wishes to practice in advance can view the choreography online at www.ajh.org.

All competing videos will be posted on the website www.pinkglovedance.com on Oct. 25, with the voting period then running through Nov. 8.

Remembering those lost to cancer

“Unfinished: A Celebration of Singers and Songwriters Gone Too Soon” will pay tribute to performers who have died from cancer, including Donna Summer, George Gershwin, LaVerne Andrews, George Harrison and Dan Fogelberg.

Voices of Hope is a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising money for cancer research through music and song. Its members have all been affected by cancer.

The gala starts at 7 p.m. with a silent auction and reception in the lobby, followed by the performance at 8 and a post-show VIP party.

Tickets cost $35 to $75 and are available online at www.nsmt.org, by calling 978-232-7200 or at the theater, 62 Dunham Road, Beverly. Proceeds will benefit the Termeer Center for Targeted Therapies at Massachusetts General Hospital.
