Auction opens on Sunday

By Kathryn DiPhilippo South Portland Historical Society

Whether you’re enjoying a relaxing lakeside vacation, ocean breezes on a windjammer sail, or dining out in one of Maine’s terrific restaurants – that’s what summer in Maine is all about. The South Portland Historical Society is excited that its signature fundraiser is here again. The Summer in Maine Auction has become the premier online auction that features all the best that Maine has to offer. All items up for bid have been donated by the service providers, allowing all auction proceeds to go directly to benefit the historical society and its museum at Bug Light Park.

Bid for yourself or for someone special - the auction will close in plenty of time for you to pick up a great gift for Father’s Day. The auction website can be found at www.SummerInMaineAuction.com. The auction will go live June 3 and run through June 9. Auction-goers will be able to simply click the bid button to place a bid. Bidders can win a five day vacation stay in a lakeside home, tickets for a Casco Bay cruise and tour of Fort Scammel on House Island, or a getaway at the Sebasco Harbor Resort with plenty of golfing. A sampling of other donors include the Downeast Duck, Amtrak Downeaster, Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, Portland Discovery, Downeast Windjammer Cruises, Maine Historical Society, Maine State Music Theater, Village by the Sea, Casco Bay Lines, Courtyard by Marriott, the McKernan Center and Scratch Bakery. There are auction items in all price ranges up for bid.
