BHMH to hold Starlight Evening July 27

Tickets are now available for Blue Hill Memorial Hospital’s second annual Starlight Evening, a night of food and drinks, live music, and dancing to benefit the hospital’s Emergency Department. The Friday, July 27, event will be hosted by Kitty and Tom Clements at Scrivelsby on Steamboat Wharf Road in Blue Hill.

The menu will include hors d’oeuvres and a buffet provided by Rioux Catering, sweet treats from Pugnuts Ice Cream Shop, and open bar. Guests will dance to music by Wavelength. A silent auction will feature several unique items, including a week in Taos, N.M., a week’s stay on Toddy Pond, a weekend trip to a Red Sox game, a private sunset cruise for six, and more.

“Every dollar raised will stay right here in the local community to fund equipment purchases and other needs in the Emergency Department,” BHMH President John Ronan said in a news release.

Last year’s Starlight Evening raised more than $45,000 to fund the purchase of a new ultrasound machine and to help with other Emergency Department expenses.

Starlight Evening is presented by Wallace Events. Sponsors include Rioux Catering, TradeWinds Marketplace, Trina Parson, The Meadow of Blue Hill, Lee Lee and the SEED Barn, Peter and Victoria Bartholow, Scott Gray and Edward Griffin, S. Ramanadha Rao, MD and Rama Surapaneni, John and Joan Freeman, Gigi Cutler, Bangor Savings Bank, Eaton Peabody, First Advisors, and Pugnuts Ice Cream.
