PORTLAND, Maine — Consigli Construction Co., Inc. of Portland held a silent auction event on Thursday, July 19, at Hadlock Field, home of the Portland Sea Dogs, to benefit the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital.
This is the third year that Consigli has held a business networking event to benefit a local charity or non-profit. Over 30 local subcontractors and vendors, architecture and engineering firms, building owners and managers attended and participated in the auction, ultimately raising $13,000.
