At its annual meeting each year, the Aid Association presents a gift to AJH, and the 2012 amount was a record breaker at $82,025. A large portion of this donation comes from the Aid’s fundraisers (Great Chefs, bake sales, art sales, etc.), but more than 50 percent of the annual donation amount comes from the proceeds of the hospital Gift Shop, which is owned and operated by the Aid Association.
Again our deepest gratitude to the many Greater Newburyport restaurants, chefs, caterers, businesses, high school volunteers, and faithful family and friends of Anna Jaques who have unstintingly sponsored Great Chefs’ Night and have readily donated their time, services and goods to the cause. Our patrons and attendees are also heartily thanked. The civic-mindedness and tremendous spirit of giving lend real credence to the notion that it “takes a village.”
A million thanks! We could not have done it without all of you.
Mary Zerigian, President
Anna Jaques Hospital Aid Association
