Great Chefs' Night raises $60,000 for AJH

To the editor:

Once again, it takes a village ...

On March 21, the Anna Jaques Hospital Aid Association hosted its signature fundraiser, Great Chefs’ Night, which raised almost $60,000 for our community hospital. This year’s theme was “Ooh la la — Great Chefs!” Our event was held at The Governor’s Academy and over 400 guests enjoyed an evening under starry Parisian skies

We would like to thank the Newburyport Five Cents Savings Bank and the Institution for Savings, who once again were our presenting sponsors for this gala.
