37th Annual First Season Benefit Dinner & Auction!

We’ve missed seeing you – our friends – over the past three Covid-filled years. We are excited to once again gather together for the 37th First Season Dinner and Live Auction at the Old Saco Inn in N. Fryeburg, ME.  We have a NEW venue, a NEW menu and a NEW location for the dinner and live auction. Space this year is limited so register early.  The Online Auction will kick off after the dinner at 9:00 PM on Saturday, March 18.

The First Season Event is also the kick-off for a week-long online auction; a great way for out-of-state Tin Mountain friends, as well as those who are not able to join us for dinner, to participate in the auction and support Tin Mountain.  The Online Auction tradition continues with beautiful, handcrafted, unique and useful items along with a multitude of gift certificates. Enjoy the fun of outbidding the competition for all the wonderful items and experiences that people have generously donated. Camp and College Scholarships as well as support for Research Interns will be available through both the live and online auctions.

Scholarships:  Camp & College

Buying a scholarship through the First Season auction helps a child attend summer camp or helps ease the burden of paying for college.  Tin Mountain   believes that every child benefits from the experiences, friendships and adventures offered by attending summer camp and we invite you to help support our camp scholarship fund through the First Season Auction.

Each year, Tin Mountain offers college scholarships to High School Seniors who are pursuing careers in environmentally oriented careers.  These important scholarships are made possible through fundraising efforts including the First Season Auction.

We invite you to support these important programs by participating in the First Season Auction while you have fun bidding on some of the other items.  Scholarships are listed as items for sale.

Other items for purchase: Also available for purchase through the website are Tin Mountain Memberships.  Members enjoy free or discounted nature programs and field trips, summer camp discounts, member only events and more. Buy one for yourself or as a gift for someone else.  Tin Mountain branded apparel is also available through the First Season Auction –  hats and fleece vests are just a few of the items available through the auction.
