The Abbe’s Gathering Gala has become a summer tradition on Mount Desert Island. Every July, we celebrate the Abbe and our work with an evening of food, drink, friendship, and philanthropy, and you are invited to join us!
This festive evening begins with a silent auction, cocktails, and passed hors d’oeuvres, followed by a sit-down dinner, live auction, and entertainment. The silent and live auctions feature original works from local and Native artists, as well as a variety of other items and one-of-a-kind experiences. Tickets are $150 per person. Invitations were mailed in June, but if you would like to make a reservation, please email this card to email@example.com, mail it to Abbe Museum, PO Box 286, Bar Harbor, ME 04609, or call 207-288-3519.
We would love to hear from you soon so that you can join us for the Ticket Holder's Party on July 22, from 5 - 7 pm, at the Abbe Museum!
The 2015 Gala Auction Catalog is now available. Please note that a lot of the 2015 auction items are currently on display in our Orientation Gallery through the end of July. If you would like to make an absentee bid, please email an Absentee Bid Form to firstname.lastname@example.org, mail it to Abbe Museum, PO Box 286, Bar Harbor, ME 04609, or call 207-288-3519.
Gala contributions make it possible for the Abbe to continue producing educational programs and exhibits that inspire thousands of visitors and students and encourage people of all ages and backgrounds to learn about the history and contemporary lives of the Wabanaki Nations.
Thanks to all of the auction donors, artists, sponsors, guests, and volunteers, we had one of our most successful Galas ever last year. Because of your generosity, we had a record setting night, raising close to $120,000—a 10% increase from last year.
