Camden National Bank Chefs Gala a Smashing Success



Four hundred and thirty guests walked the Hollywood Walk of Fame at the 18th Annual Camden National Bank Chefs’ Gala, as over $50,000 in net proceeds will go to the Breast Clinic and Mammogram Scholarships at Maine Coast Memorial Hospital.

This popular event sponsored by Camden National Bank in partnership with WLBZ2 was sold out by the end of March even with the additional space made possible by Ray Builders and EBS. Ray Builders constructed and EBS donated the materials for a portable kitchen to make room for additional guests and provide the Chefs, led by Chip Butterwick, a comfortable working environment to prepare their delectable dishes.

Crystal Limousine owner John Partridge donated the use of two limos so guests arrived in style to walk the red carpet. Atlantic Landscape provided decorations so realistic that guests felt they had been transported to Hollywood.

Community support was at an all time high with Dead River Company and Witham Family Properties partnering to sponsor the popular Tony Boffa Band.
