Boothbay Region Health Center's first-ever “Hats for Health" sold-out fundraiser was not only a whole lot of  fun for attendees but brought in over $11,000 to help benefit the Center and its mission to provide the very best health care for the Boothbay region. 
The evening included a wine tasting, compliments of Wicked Wines, a grand buffet from the kitchen of Whale's Tale and music by local favorites, Dave and Chris Gagne. Master of Ceremonies Darrell Gudroe kept the evening moving along with a hat contest, silent auction, and a 50/50 raffle. 
Kate Maringer won the ladies "Best Hat" (Whale’s Tale)  and Dr. Chip Teel won the men's "Best Hat" for his version of brains; Honorable Mention went to Mary Lou Teel for her creative hat. a sea gull cap.   
Special thanks goes to our sponsors: J. Edward Knight, First National Bank, OPI Corp, Pinkham's Gourmet Market, Pat Oberuch Electric, Pat Farrin & Sons, Wicked Wines, and  Whale’s Tale.  A special thanks goes to St. Andrews Free Bed Fund, which helps provide financial assistance to anyone unable to pay for health care expenses.
