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, a delicious meal, and opportunities for networking.
