The Scholarship Fund
On Friday night, we hold an exciting live auction of a wide variety of items, all generously donated by friends of the Forum. All auction proceeds, including those from our Thursday night silent auction, are returned to the community as scholarship funds for college-bound children of Maine fishing families. To date, the auction has raised $358,246 for educational scholarships. A ongoing bucket raffle also raises more funds for the kids and provides the winner the chance to go home with some great prizes.
The Trade Show
Over 120 suppliers of commercial fishing equipment and services exhibit at the Forum each year. Whatever your needs are right now – traps, engines, electronics, insurance or financial services – you’ll find it here and often at Forum-only discounted prices. Check out this year’s trade show and exhibitors list.
