Portland Uncorked! 2018

The 2018 Portland Uncorked! annual fundraising event was a huge success!  It took place on Friday, March 9, at the Custom House Hall, 312 Fore Street, Portland from 5:30PM to 9:00 PM. We had great attendance to help support the Portland Maine Professional chapter’s projects in Ecuador and Ethiopia, as well as work within our local community. Attendees enjoyed tasting Maine-brewed beer and Maine-produced wine along with delicious hors d’oeurves. We did well with our raffle items and beautiful and unique silent auction items and services. A HUGE thank-you to our sponsors! And thank you to all who worked on planning the                                                                           event and to all who supported it by attending!
