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’d like to make an early reservation you may call 207-288-3519 or email email@example.com. Invitations will be mailed in June and the auction catalog will be available in early July.
Thank you to all of the auction donors, artists, sponsors and guests who helped to make the 2013 Gathering gala a smashing success! More than $129,000 was donated on July 17, 2013 to help support educational programs and exhibits at the Abbe, as well as a special statewide initiative to help Maine educators in all 16 counties fulfill the state mandate requiring them to include Wabanaki content in grades K–12.
