The Mitchell Institute Gala
5:30 to 9 p.m.
October 20, 2023
Brick South, Thompson’s Point
Portland, Maine

The Mitchell Institute Gala is an annual celebration of Mitchell Scholars and the Mitchell Institute’s mission to unlock the potential of Maine students. A not-to-be-missed evening featuring a reception and served dinner, Gala is a festive opportunity to learn more about the Institute and its impact, to meet Scholars and hear their stories, and to celebrate with friends.

With its rough-hewn wood and steel beams and brick walls, Brick South at Thompson’s Point provides us with a reborn industrial space for our gathering as well as a delicious meal and opportunities for networking.

To view photos and coverage of the 2022 Gala (which will give you a sense of the venue and how people dress for the event), please see our Exposure story. If you have questions about the event or purchasing a sponsorship, please email Director of Development Sarah Short or call 207-358-7733.
