'Holidays in Bloom'

NEWBURYPORT, MA — The Anna Jaques Hospital Aid Association wants to maximize the joy of the season with a new event, “Holidays in Bloom”.

This special evening is designed to help get you in the true spirit of decking the halls and entertaining with panache throughout the season. “Holidays in Bloom” will feature Steve Janavicus, of Flowers by Steve, as he demonstrates how to create memorable and festive floral arrangements—a perfect way to enhance your home. These stunning arrangements will then be raffled off to attendees. Everything from delicious jams and jellies to artful clothing and jewelry will be featured in this lovely seaside setting.

The fun-filled evening will include sweet and savory delights (hors d’oeuvres, desserts and coffee) prepared by the chefs at Seaglass Restaurant. A cash bar will also be available.

“Holidays in Bloom” will take place on November 12, from 6:00–10:00 p.m., at the Blue Ocean Music Hall, 4 Ocean Front, Salisbury, MA. Reservations are $45.00 per person; tables for groups of six or eight may also be reserved. Please send checks, made out to the AJH Aid Association, to Ms. Amanda LaPlante, Volunteer Office, Anna Jaques Hospital, 25 Highland Avenue, Newburyport, MA 01950. For credit card reservations or further information, call the Volunteer Office at 978-463-1150.

All proceeds from the event will benefit patient services at the hospital and promoting the health, education and welfare of the Greater Newburyport community.
