Benefit Patron

Thank you for considering a Patron donation to support the 32nd Annual Benefit. After cancelling the Patron Preview Party last year due to COVID-19 we are excited to announce the return of the Patron Party as an in-person, outdoor event, assuming health and safety conditions allow. Special thanks to Robert Stolar and Lesley Draper, who will host the party at their beautiful shorefront home,Summerwind, in Northeast Harbor on Wednesday, August 11th.The Patron Program is a vital source of funding for FOA’s conservation work in Acadia, from trails and carriage roads, to youth programs and resiliency to climate change. The Patron Party is our way to thank this wonderful group of donors and build momentum for the Annual Benefit’s live auction, silent auction, and paddle raise.

Each donation level (Friend, Sponsor, and Benefactors’ Circle) will include two tickets to the party as space allows. The party will likely reach capacity, so please make your donation today. Please note that your Patron donation is entirely tax-deductible this year.  Thank you!
