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 many fantastic auction items.

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.

Update 7/11/16: Due to a wonderful response from our Benefit Patrons and excitement around Acadia’s Centennial, Friends of Acadia’s 27th Annual Benefit is currently at capacity. In the possible event that tickets become available, we are managing a wait-list for those who would like to attend and do not yet have tickets. To be added to the wait-list please contact Shawn Keeley 207-288-3340.

Remember that anyone may submit an absentee bid and help this special event to do more for Acadia. (Absentee bids are due Noon EST, Friday, August 12, 2016.)
