Jim Lawlor, Frank Vallee, Pauline Cortellino, Deb Anthoine, Beth Emerson, and Mary Desjardins


 The Royal Oak Room’s resident chef Scott Johnson prepared hors d’oeuvres of poached lobster cheesecake and a savory mushroom strudel. The dinner started with a baby arugula salad and was followed by a choice of seared strip beef loin with rosemary red wine reduction and cod encrusted in flaky phyllo or a vegetarian meal of crispy trio squash with eggplant and rosemary.

The nine-piece Bob Charest Band brought the audience to their feet, playing tunes from throughout the last 75 years. A live auction brought the highest net revenue for a live fundraising auction for St. Mary’s since 1997! A cruise on Casco Bay, a getaway to Abaco in the Bahamas, and the ever popular Fish Bones American Grill participation dinner were some of the most sought after items.

St. Mary’s board member Mark Anthoine and his wife Deb served as the event’s champions and were pleased to announce that this event was a huge success, raising over $50,000! The net proceeds will benefit St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center’s Operating Room instrumentation and equipment needs. St. Mary’s opened six brand new surgical suites early this year.
