Special Events Spark Momentum in Campaign Fundraising
Paul & Giselaine Coulombe
In August 2020, Giselaine and Paul Coulombe hosted an event at the Boothbay Harbor Country Club to raise awareness and support for the Center of Excellence in Autism and Developmental Disorders campaign. Their passion around the project brought together a group of community leaders and interested family members to hear about the exciting project. Event speakers included Paul Coulombe, MaineHealth President Rich Petersen and Cathy Honeycomb, mother of young adult twins with autism and campaign cabinet member. By the end of the evening more than $585,000 was raised toward the innovative building project.
In October 2020, our Campaign Cabinet members Tami Goldsmith and Erin Soucy hosted an intimate reception for friends and donors at North 43 Bistro in South Portland to continue building awareness of the Center of Excellence and encourage financial support for our campaign. Maine Behavioral Healthcare’s new president, Kelly Barton, made her event debut with welcoming greetings to those attending. The evening affair raised more than $105,000, extending the campaign’s momentum through the fall.
Brightening the Holidays for Spring Harbor Patients
For many, the holidays mark “the most wonderful time of the year,” but for those who spend the holidays away from their loved ones to take care of their health, the season can be difficult to get through.
Thanks to all who spread their love and support by donating to the Holiday Partners Program, which provided gifts to those who were receiving care at Spring Harbor in December 2020.
A very special thanks to our friends at UNUM, the Westbrook Women’s Club, and Woodard & Curran for sponsoring gift drives, which sent carloads of gifts to our patients who may otherwise have gone without.
Thank You to Our Donors
Our sincerest gratitude goes out to those who helped support Maine Behavioral Healthcare in 2020. Because of your commitment and generosity, we are able to provide the people we serve with timely access to the best and most appropriate care available and treat them with compassion, dignity and respect.
