BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER)-- The Maine Discovery Museum will be holding its annual auction Saturday, November 23rd. This is the largest fundraising event held by the museum bringing in nearly $50,000 last year. Attendees will have the chance to bid on one-of-a-kind benches painted by Maine artists.
All proceeds go toward the museum to help keep the three floors running, bring in new exhibits, and provide scholarships to local kids to attend programs and camps held at the museum.
The auction will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn in Bangor. Attendees can expect two silent auctions, a live auction, dinner, drinks, and a raffle too. Tickets are still available and can be purchased by calling The Maine Discovery Museum at (207) 262-7200.
