3rd Annual Martinis and Art

More than 8,000 Maine residents are living with cancer. You can help by supporting Martinis and Art, a unique and whimsical fundraiser to be held at the Gulf of Maine Research Institute’s beautiful Portland waterfront location on Thursday, October 24th.

Sip on martinis while you explore three floors of donated original Maine art and choose one that captures your eye. Then celebrity hosts, singer/songwriter Jonathan Edwards and WCSH-6’s 207 anchor Kathleen Shannon will draw one lucky winner to take home each treasured piece of art.

Enjoy the sounds of Standard Issue and the new tastes from Maine Craft Distilling.  All proceeds from the third annual Martinis and Art will benefit the American Cancer Society’s Maine Patient Navigator Program, which helps Maine cancer patients better manage their cancer journey.

Happening October 24th from 5:30 to 8:00pm to support Maine cancer patients. Admission includes one entry to win your choice of an original piece of art. Tickets are limited, so hurry and get yours soon. Available online, or by calling 207-373-3742.
