Northern Light Maine Coast Hospital announces the theme of the Chefs’ Gala

Gourmet, bistro-style cuisine prepared by local chefs will highlight the twenty-sixth annual Northern Light Maine Coast Hospital Chefs’ Gala, sponsored by Camden National Bank. This year’s block party-themed event, scheduled for Saturday, April 27, from 5:30 to 11 p.m. at the Ramada in Ellsworth, will support breast care services at Maine Coast Hospital.

Wavelength, the award-winning, five-piece band known for its high energy and dance-friendly set lists, will be back to provide the entertainment. A team of the greatest chefs in the area brought together by Chip Butterwick from Chipper’s Restaurant & Catering will share their delectable specialties street party-style. Selections will include a raw bar.

Every dollar raised at the Chefs’ Gala will support breast care services provided at Northern Light Maine Coast Hospital, including scholarships to provide access to mammograms for those who lack health insurance or have high deductibles. Proceeds will also fund improvements to breast care facilities to enhance patient comfort, convenience, and access to care.
