Nearly 400 people gathered in the King Pine Room of Sugarloaf's Base Lodge for the annual Charity Ball this past weekend, including U.S. Senator Angus King.
In addition to the auction events, Summit organizers recognized two recipients of Summiteer awards at the Charity Ball for their commitment and contributions to the Charity Summit over the years. The charity recognized Candace Foundation and Forsley family/Shipyard as the Corporate Summiteer, and the Individual Summiteer Award was presented to Peter Webber.
