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. 

Save the date! Great Chefs' Night 2020 is on Friday, April 3rd at the Blue Ocean Event Center. Tickets to soon be on sale!

Tree of Light Remembrance

Tree of Light is a community-wide remembrance event organized by the Anna Jaques Hospital Aid Association. Individuals can purchase a light to shine on the AJH Remembrance Tree in honor of a loved one. All names are listed on a Tree of Light scroll which is displayed in the hospital lobby, on the AJH website, and included in an ad which runs in the Newburyport Daily News. For every light that shines from the tree, it shines in honor of someone special. The Tree of Light Ceremony kicks off with the lighting of the tree outside the hospital’s main entrance and is followed by refreshments and entertainment.

Thank you for making the Holiday House Tour a success!

On Saturday, December 14, close to 1,000 people enjoyed the 2019 Holiday House Tour presented this year by the Anna Jaques Hospital Aid Association. The pouring rain did not keep people away from the beautiful houses and community treasures selected to showcase the holiday season in the Greater Newburyport area. Over $15,000 was raised to support Anna Jaques Hospital.

Thank you to event sponsor, Fruh Realty, as well as the many homeowners, volunteers, advertisers and tour patrons who made the entire day a huge success.

It is the support of these many sponsors, homeowners, volunteers and advertisers who help us achieve our mission of supporting Anna Jaques Hospital to provide the highest quality of medical care and improve the health of our community. All monies raised stay in the Newburyport community!

Next year’s tour will on December 12, 2020!
