PURCHASE TICKETS FOR THIS YEAR'S EVENT
Delicious desserts provided by local restaurants and chefs will be available for sampling throughout the live and silent auctions. Community volunteers have been diligently gathering a variety of items and gift packages, including getaways; artwork; Maine-made jewelry and children’s items. There will be something for everyone and just in time for the holidays.
“We have found that people enjoy this event because it is a low-key, come as you are, fun-filled night out, especially when the good-natured bidding wars begin! Our volunteers have been putting together some outstanding, unique packages again this year,” explains Wayne Melanson, Volunteer Manager and event coordinator. “We will have items and packages in all price ranges. There will be something for everybody who wants to get in on the action.”
Proceeds will benefit terminally ill patients and their families, grieving children and adults in our community, and end of life education for all.
The event has expanded to include an additional room with more tables and chairs! Doors open at 5:45 p.m. for dessert and the silent auction. The live auction will begin at approximately 6:15 p.m. The evening should wrap up at approximately 8:30 p.m. Tickets are only $15 per person and can be purchased at www.pathfindersmaine.org; reserved by phone by contacting Wayne Melanson, Hospice of Eastern Maine at 973-8269; or purchased at the door.
