SMHC Auxiliary Hosts 7th Annual Girls Night Out

June 07, 2017

Tickets Now on Sale

Looking for laughter, silliness and an opportunity to escape the stress of daily life? Join us for a special night with girlfriends at Southern Maine Health Care’s (SMHC) 7th Annual Girls Night Out on Wednesday, June 21. Hosted by the SMHC Auxiliary at Duffy’s Tavern & Grille, 168 Saco Avenue in Old Orchard Beach, the evening will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a silent auction, heavy hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar, followed at 7:00 p.m. by dessert and entertainment from comedienne Mary Ellen Rinaldi.

Truly a character with character, Mary Ellen Rinaldi has a distinct style of stand up that is unique among comics today: a storyteller with real life tales and observations that are funny and insightful. You'll shake your head as she shakes your world, touching your heart as she reaches right into the nooks and crannies of everyday events.

The Auxiliary has been an integral part of the SMHC family since 1907, raising millions of dollars to support programs, facilities, technology needs and services that directly benefit patient care. It consists of friends of the hospital including former patients, employees and retirees, physicians’ family members, and neighbors who live in the communities SMHC serves from Sanford to Saco. Each believes in the importance of quality, community health care that provides the latest in diagnostic and treatment technology. Thanks to your generosity, we have been successful in our mission to support SMHC’s patients.

Tickets are $35 each and can be purchased by contacting JoJo Dryden at 590-2855, via e-mail at or by sending a check payable to SMHC Auxiliary to: SMHC Auxiliary Girls Night Out, P.O. Box 626, Biddeford, ME 04005. Please register on line at and bring some friends!
