The Mansion’s 2018 Christmas Gala on November 28 was a record breaker! We welcomed over 200 members and friends and raised over $17,000 in ticket sales for the Mansion’s educational programming and conservation initiatives. Guests enjoyed musical stylings by Jazz singer Viva, great hors d’oeuvres courtesy of the Cumberland Club, signature drinks (including fabulous ale from Allagash Brewing Company), and of course the stunning decorations by this year’s designers. We thank our great sponsors and event partners for making this year’s Gala our best yet!
We also sold out of all four performances of our annual favorite Night of the Nutcracker collaboration with Portland Ballet, as well as A Taste & Tipple with Mr. Dickens, a new offering this year featuring modern spins of Victorian culinary classics by Blue Elephant Events & Catering with actor Andrew Harris hosting as Charles Dickens held on December 8. 
Thanks to all who attended these great events and help support our education and conservation initiatives!
