Friends of Acadia 25th Annual BenefitSaturday, August 9, 2014
Our 25th anniversary event!
Asticou Inn
Northeast Harbor, Maine

Presented by Chilton Trust Company

Featuring auctioneer Mr. Charles Antin of Christie’s

The Friends of Acadia Benefit Auction offers a way for all friends of Acadia National Park to provide essential support while enjoying a wonderful evening of fun and friendship. The Benefit Auction Committee Chairs and volunteers work all year to create an event with exciting auction items, a convivial atmosphere, and surprises throughout the evening. We appreciate the volunteers, Benefit Patrons, and Business Sponsors who make the Benefit Auction possible. A special “thank you” goes to the many artists, individuals, and businesses who contribute the fantastic auction items in the auction preview catalog, and to the local caterers—August Moon, Bar Harbor Catering, Country Fare Catering, and the Islesford Dock—who provided appetizers during the silent auction.

By participating in the Benefit Auction—by bidding on live or silent auction items at the event, sending in an absentee bid, or by simply attending the event or making a donation in support of it—you can make a real and lasting difference in the protection of Acadia. Friends of Acadia uses proceeds from the Benefit Auction to support new and ongoing programs in Acadia that engage youth, protect natural and cultural resources, and contribute to a quality visitor experience in the park.

If you wish to receive and invitation for next year’s event, please contact the Friends of Acadia office at 207-288-3340 or
