Friends of Acadia’s
35th Annual Benefit


Mark your calendars for August 10, 2024 to celebrate & support our Acadia.

It's certain to be an unforgettable evening

The Annual Benefit venue has changed for the first time in nearly two decades.

We’re thrilled to offer guests of the Annual Benefit the opportunity to enjoy the historic and enchanted venue of Cover Farm.

Join us under the stars in the secret walled garden for an elegant cocktail party and silent auction, then on to the tent for dinner, live auction, paddle raise and dancing the night away to the Sultans of Swing band. All to celebrate and support our beloved Acadia.

Cover Farm

Historic Cover Farm is nestled between the Pot & Kettle and Salt Cottages, overlooking Frenchman Bay in Hulls Cove. It dates back to 1792 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Prepare to be charmed by this exquisite property.

Paddle Raise: Can We Built it? Yes We Can!

This year’s Paddle Raise aims to refresh the park’s aging fleet of heavy equipment, which is critical to both routine maintenance in the park and Acadia’s ability to recover from recent storm damage.

Special thanks to our presenting sponsor, Chilton Trust Company.

And special thanks to this year’s Benefit Committee Co-chairs:
Anne Green, Lydia Kimball, and Jill Hinckley.
