PORTLAND, Maine — Keller Williams Realty Portland will sponsor the second annual Maine Suitcase Party fundraiser 7-11 p.m. Friday, Sept. 27, to benefit Camp Sunshine. Partygoers bring packed suitcases to the event, held in a private hangar at the Portland International Jetport, with grand prize raffle winners boarding a private jet with a guest for an expenses-paid, luxurious weekend of a lifetime in New York City.
Other lucky winners and their guests will climb into limousines for luxurious weekend getaways at regional resorts and hotels. Tickets are available at campsunshine.org/support_
Camp Sunshine, campsunshine.org, is a one-of-a-kind national retreat in Casco, Maine, that provides a respite for children and their families coping with such life-threatening illnesses such as cancer, kidney disease and lupus.
Keller Williams has set a goal to raise $80,000 from the event, enough to cover the cost of adding a new week for families at Camp Sunshine. Last year’s event raised $60,000.
Tickets to the Maine Suitcase Party cost $100 for a First Class ticket, which includes a raffle ticket for the grand prize. A Jetsetter ticket, costing $250, provides access to a special private lounge area inside the hangar. A corporate-level Co-Pilot Package enables partygoers to purchase 12 First Class tickets for the price of 10, or $1,000. Additional raffle entries may be purchased at the event for $50 each.
