We are just days away from the 32nd Annual Friends of Acadia Benefit—the event of the year for those who celebrate and support our favorite national park! This year’s Annual Benefit and Auction is Saturday, Aug. 14 from 7-8 p.m. and it is a virtual event, which means ALL are welcome and there is no cost to register.
Join us from anywhere in the world for this fun, fast paced, and engaging event to benefit our beloved Acadia. Enjoy the live auction, silent auction, and paddle raise—all online. Plus, we’ve got a few surprise speakers.
REGISTER, SET, BID: To attend the virtual Benefit, you’ll need to register online at Event.Gives/Acadia by clicking on “Register” in the upper right. From your phone, text the word ACADIA to 843-606-5995 and follow the link. Registrants can bid on incredible trips and experiences, artwork, jewelry, and a host of one-of-a-kind items. Bidding is underway on silent auction items now, and you can preview the live auction items prior to Saturday. View auction items and descriptions in our Benefit Auction catalog.
DRAWING FOR A JORDAN POND SIGN: If you register before Friday, Aug. 13 at 4 p.m., you are automatically entered into a drawing for an authentic Jordan Pond sign to be randomly selected from those who pre-register.
HOST A WATCH PARTY: For many, gathering socially with Acadia-loving friends is the best part of the Annual Benefit. That’s why some are hosting Annual Benefit Watch Parties or purchasing our Benefit Boxes to enjoy at home. If you host a Watch Party, let us know by taking a photo of your crew and tagging us on Instagram with the hashtag #benefitacadia21. We’ll be streaming some of your photos during our virtual event.
