American Lighthouse Foundation 15th Anniversary Gala & Awards Dinner
The public is invited to attend a special evening dinner celebration and fundraiser being held on November 7, 2009, at 6 p.m. in the ballroom of the beautiful Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport, Maine. The event marks the 15th anniversary of the American Lighthouse Foundation (ALF).
The evening will begin with a social hour, hors d’oeuvres, music, and a silent auction. Following dinner, National Geographic photographer/producer Todd Gipstein will present his program “Ledge Light.” This entertaining program will highlight one of ALF’s newest lighthouse projects and will introduce you to New London Ledge Light, a well-known offshore beacon with a storied history and a future that’s brighter than ever.
Highlighting the evening will be the presentation of ALF’s 2009 Len Hadley Volunteerism Awards, the Keeper of the Light Award, and the Distinguished Lighthouse Community Service Award.
The American Lighthouse Foundation is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to save and preserve our nation’s historic light stations and their rich heritage. ALF accomplishes this in part through the restoration, promotion, and adaptive re-use of America’s historic light stations, as well as educational initiatives that foster the sustainable preservation of lighthouses and perpetuate the legacy of the men and women who have tended them.
Tickets (reservations required) for this event are $49.00 per person and include a choice of Prime Rib, Chicken Florentine, Baked Haddock or Vegetarian Strudel. Reservations can be made by calling the American Lighthouse Foundation’s Maine office at (207) 594-4174 or online at www.lighthousefoundation.org
