Sponsor or Attend an Event

We hold three annual fundraising events:

Maine Seacoast Mission President John Zavodny has announced the two honorees for the next summer’s Sunbeam Award Gala: Sigma Kappa Sorority and Acadia Senior College. The Mission’s Sunbeam Award Gala is its centerpiece fundraising event, built around recognizing those who embody the ideals of community.

President Zavodny said the values and accomplishments of these two inspiring organizations are clear examples of actions and spirit that make communities strong. Maine Seacoast Mission is honored to celebrate these two organizations’ contributions.

Stay tuned to the Mission’s social media pages for Gala details. Meanwhile, please contact Anna Silver at [email protected] or 207-801-6011 with questions and comments.

Open Tennis Tournament

The Presidents Scholarship Celebration

This event supports our Student Pathways and Scholarship programs. An inspiring event to recognize and honor students in the Mission’s educational programs and those who inspire them. In addition to presenting scholarships and the Mission lanyard to our 2021 Mission Scholars, we recognize a student Trailblazer and a Mission Guide, who demonstrates advocacy and support for educational opportunity.

It’s a celebration of the accomplishments and potential of our young adults. The President’s Scholarship Celebration will be held Wednesday, July 14, 2021. It will be virtual again this year.
