Aid Association

Raising Funds for Patient Care through
Signature Events & Programs

Founded in 1888, the Anna Jaques Hospital Aid Association has been in existence for almost as long as the hospital itself. With close to 200 members governed by its own board of directors, the Aid is comprised of energetic, dedicated individuals whose primary goal is to raise funds for the hospital. Their work has made a tremendous difference over the years and has provided millions of dollars for mission critical needs.

Great Chefs' Night 2019

Thank you to everyone who attended and supported Great Chefs’ Night- Boots & Scrubs on Friday, April 5th at the Blue Ocean Event Center. More than 350 guests, comprised of employees, Aid Association members, board members, community leaders, and hospital supporters enjoyed food samplings from local restaurants and chefs, live entertainment, raffles, a live auction, and dancing. 

This annual event is the Aid Association’s largest fundraiser for Anna Jaques thanks in large part to the support its sponsors, especially the Provident Bank as the presenting sponsor this year. In addition to the popular $5,000 jewelry raffle generously donated by Matt and Karyn Khatib of M.K. Benatti Jewelers, a trip raffle to the destination of your choice, donated by BNY Mellon Wealth Management, drew in lots of excitement.

Thank you to this year’s presenting sponsor:
