33rd Annual Benefit Patrons

The Patron Program is a vital source of funding for Friends of Acadia’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.

Our greatest appreciation to the Patrons of the Friends of Acadia Benefit.

Their support makes our special event possible.

A special thanks to Tim Harrington and The Claremont Hotel for hosting this year’s Patron Preview Party.
