Bountiful Holiday Party

Bountiful Holiday Party, Thursday, November 4, 6:00 pm. Complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres, music, and shopping–benefiting the Mental Health Association in Talbot County.

Bountiful, Talbot County’s highly acclaimed home furnishing store, is hosting its annual Holiday Kickoff party on Thursday, November 4, 2010, six to nine, at the Talbot Town Shopping Center at 218 N. Washington Street in Easton. Every year Bountiful shows its support for a local nonprofit by donating a generous percentage of one night’s sales to the organization. Jamie Merida, Bountiful owner and interior designer, has chosen the Mental Health Association as this year’s recipient to benefit MHATC programs and initiatives. The community is invited for this festive event.

MHATC Board Members and Jamie Merida of Bountiful look forward to welcoming guests for an enjoyable evening of gift buying, with a two-fold purpose. Guests at the event will fill their senses with live music by the Wye Choral Scholars, delicious hors d’oeuvres, and shopping while helping to increase mental health awareness in our community. Easton’s best restaurants will contribute food for the event.

Jeff Messing, MHATC President, expresses his thanks to Jamie for valuing mental health and the prevention and education programs that MHATC offers for the community. MHATC hosts Kids on the Block puppeteers, an Eldercare Program, Mental Health First Aid, a Support Group for Loss by Suicide, Support Group for Families of Individuals with Bi Polar Disorder, and a Veterans’ Fund. Additional information about the organization can be found on its website, www.mhamdes.org.

With an ambitious agenda ahead for the year, the Mental Health Association Board is very pleased to have been chosen as the beneficiary of Bountiful’s generosity, stated Jeff Messing, President of the MHATC Board. Messing looks forward to greeting members of the community shopping for their holiday purchases with friends and family on November 4.

“The communities on the Mid-Shore have been good to us, and this is one way that my staff and I can give back to them, states Jamie Merida. If anyone is thinking of adding one piece furniture, re-doing a room or a whole house, and would like to co-ordinate his or her purchases so a portion of the sale goes to the Mental Health Association, please contact Tina Mills at the Mental Health Association or Jamie Merida at Bountiful.”

ETC Clothes Trunk Show

Coffee, Tea & Scones will brighten the morning for an ETC Clothes Trunk Show by Anastasia on Tuesday, February 23, 9:00-11:00 o’clock.  Proceeds from sales at the show will benefit the Mental Health Association’s Mental Health First Aid program.

ETC is a casual, yet sophisticated, collection of classic clothing.  “Refined, but never boring,” states Anastasia.  “Beautiful fabrics tailored for a great fit.”  The clothes are a sampling from the 2010 Spring Collection.   The fashion show will be highlighted by our featured speaker, Dr. Judith Porter Gieske, who will talk on “Caring,” at 9:30 am.

Co Chairs Hope Harrington and Marguerite Beebe look forward to planning this event in a bright and attractive venue.  The event will be held at the Talbot Senior Center, 400 Brookletts Avenue.  “This is an opportunity for everyone to visit and tour this magnificent new facility” states Hope Harrington.  The stunning interior design is by Jamie Merida and his associate, Amanda Friend, of Bountiful.  Join us for a morning that will include an informal fashion show, food for thought, and delicious pastries. Tickets are $10 a person or at the door.  There will be a raffle for two large gift baskets.  RSVP by calling 822-0444 or write jdavis@mhamdes.org.  Please visit our website mhamdes.org for more information on the Trunk Show and/or Mental Health First Aid.
