Supporting ticket: $150; Patron ticket: $250; Benefactor: $1,000 (includes two tickets)

Join us for our Spring Benefit Dinner! Put on your garden party best, and enjoy a special evening at First Hill Gardens in Ogunquit, a beautiful 18th-century farmhouse, situated on four private acres. We’ll celebrate Old York’s renovation of the Perkins House and new administrative offices, and look forward to future projects. The Perkins Family was exceedingly proud of their gardens—filled with flowers, fruit trees, and a monumental rose arbor, it was once a “showpiece” on Lindsay Road. With the house renovations now complete, Old York hopes to restore the gardens to their former grandeur.

Guests will enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, followed by a three-course gourmet meal prepared by Chef Jason Miller of First Hill.

Proceeds from this event provide essential support for the many things Old York cares for and cares about: 16 buildings, 20 properties, 5 full-time and 25 part-time employees, more than 20,000 artifacts, 50,000 archival objects in the library, and thousands of people served year round through tours, educational programs, exhibitions, and special events.
