Pen Bay Y seeks boats for 2018 auction

Sep 06, 2017

Rockport — The Penobscot Bay YMCA is seeking donations for its 2018 annual Boat Auction scheduled for the second Saturday in June. Since the first auction in 1998, this major fundraising event provides much-needed support to send kids to summer camp. The Y opens its doors to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay.

The Y is looking for new or old boats (sail, power, dinghy, kayak, canoe, skiffs, rowing shells, surf boards, and just about anything that floats), or other nautical items that individuals would like to donate for a tax write-off. Someone from the Y will stop by and make sure it is suitable, and arrange for transportation at no expense to the donor.

The boat auction’s success is due mainly to boat donations by private owners. To donate a boat or for more information, contact Marcia Roberts, development director, at 236.3375, ext. 209, or
