Andrew Hamilton- Father of the Bride needs your votes!
BANGOR, ME – Andrew Hamilton, an attorney for Eaton Peabody, will soon be the father-of-the-bride. In an effort to brush up on his dancing skills and prepare for the father/daughter dance at the reception, he happily agreed to perform at the Maine Affiliate of Susan G. Komen’s Dancing Like the Stars on March 9th.
Although Andrew has not lost any anyone in his family from breast cancer, he has had many friends affected by it. Andrew has many important females in his life; whether they are at home, at work, or in the community, he wants them all to know that he is doing this for them!
Andrew also wants to make sure that we give credit to his talented dance partner, Amber Saucier. He wants to let us all know that she is a truly exceptional dancer and that he thanks her for being a remarkable teacher!
Andrew Hamilton practices law at Eaton Peabody. Andy counsels clients in central, northern and coastal Maine regarding land use, environmental and municipal law matters. He has been involved over the years in a number of community efforts, including service as past President of the Katahdin Council, Boy Scouts of America; past Senior Warden of St. John’s Episcopal Church; and past Chair of the Board of Trustees of John Bapst Memorial High School.

Komen for the Cure® Grants Program. The community grants program is the backbone of the local affiliate, but their impact reaches far beyond those programs, including breast health education offerings and community organizing.
The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Promise: to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.
