Auction and Dinner Gala

Love Really Counts:

Our 2015 Auction & Dinner Gala

Thanks to our wonderful community of sponsors, volunteers, and guests, our annual Love Really Counts: Auction & Dinner Gala smashed all previous records and raised $200,000 for the Center's work!

Oh, what a night! Friday, February 27 was a beautiful night of 600 people celebrating the healing power of love as well as the support given by people who make sure no child has to grieve alone.

Volunteer set-up teams transformed Portland's Holiday Inn by the Bay for a silent auction and cocktail party downstairs and live auction and dinner program upstairs. Shout out to Circus Conservatory of America and Maine Marimba Ensemble for their fabulous performances!

Warm and special thanks to our dessert speaker, author Monica Wood. she is simply delicious! And gratitude and love to our host, WCSH 6 News Anchor Cindy Williams, and our auctioneer, Tom Saturley of Tranzon Auctions.
