What a success – over 200 people joined us on April 7 for this unique and delicious event to benefit the Eastern Trail Alliance’s “Close the Gap” campaign! They sampled signature dishes from local establishments, bid on exciting items in our silent auction, and danced the night away to music by the Time Pilots! Most importantly, they all were contributing, or otherwise helping, to raise funds to Close the Gap in South Portland.
The event was a Camp Ketcha in Scarborough.
What is the “Close the Gap” campaign? A $4.1 million fundraising effort to close a critical 1.6 mile gap between Scarborough and South Portland. Once complete, we will enjoy 16 miles of continuous, off-road trail for transportation and recreational use between Bug Light in South Portland and Downtown Saco.
Currently, we have approximately $500,000 to raise before we can break ground.
