Get ready for a night like no other! The Abbe's Gathering Gala is a great night for food, drink, friendship, and philanthropy and we'd love to have you there. Among the fabulous auction items this year is a 16' birch bark canoe!
Similar to the one at right, this canoe was constructed by David Moses Bridges, Passamaquoddy, and Steve Cayard especially for the Gathering Gala. They have built a number of birch bark canoes together; their Gala canoe is now on display at the Abbe Museum downtown.
The evening starts at 5:00pm with cocktails and a silent auction, followed by dinner at 7:00pm and a live auction. After dinner, stay and dance to live music by the Shane Ellis Band with Big Dee.
Tickets are $150 each and include the entire evening with dinner choices of filet mignon, crab-stuffed haddock or carnival squash. Please call the Abbe Museum to make your reservation at
207-288-3519 or email email@example.com.
We hope to see you this year at the Gathering Gala! The silent
and live auctions will feature original artwork from over 50 artists.
A paddle raise during the live auction will support a matching grant for Abbe education programs statewide.
