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. If you would like to make an early reservation you may call 207-288-3519 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Invitations will be mailed in May and the auction catalog will be available in June.
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. 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.
