Portland Harbor Hotel fundraiser for children’s meals

From Portland HH

PORTLAND – The annual ICE BAR parties at Portland Harbor Hotel in Portland, have drawn enthusiastic crowds and raised thousands of dollars for local non-profits for several years.

This year, due to government restrictions and safety concerns, the annual celebration and fundraiser will move online.

 “We couldn’t bear the thought of not making our annual donation to a local charity,” explains David Hart, CEO of Buffalo-based Hart Hotels. “This year, for obvious reasons, we’re not able to host our annual Fire & Ice event at our hotel. However, that will not stop us from coming together to celebrate as a community and supporting this important work.”  

 Everyone is invited to donate and enter to win a luxury getaway.

The grand prize winner will enjoy three nights at the luxurious Portland Harbor Hotel in the heart of the Old Port District. The hotel is within walking distance of historic sites, museums, sightseeing tours, boutique shops, and popular restaurants. Dine in the garden courtyard or have cocktail hour by the firepit. The winner can enjoy breakfast and dinner at the restaurant, BlueFin North Atlantic Seafood, as well as complimentary admission to some top attractions. 

The second prize winner will receive a two night stay at the Portland Harbor Hotel and breakfast and dinner for two at Bluefin. The winner will also enjoy a bottle of champagne and a box of artisan chocolates at check-in.

 All proceeds from entries will benefit Full Plates, Full Potential, a coalition of community leaders, stakeholders and advocates working to end child hunger in Maine. Started in 2014 by John Woods and Justin Alfond, the organization was born out of the work of the Maine Legislature’s Task force to end Student Hunger. Through that work, it was realized that Maine desperately needed a statewide organization focused solely on maximizing participation in federal child nutrition programs.

 Platinum sponsors of  ICE BAR include Cross Insurance, Distinctive Tile and Design, Harmon’s Floral Company, and Old Port Advisors.

Gold sponsors include Annie K Designs and Opus Consulting.

Tucked in the heart of Portland’s historic Old Port district a block from the waterfront, the Portland Harbor Hotel is known for its distinctive design and exemplary service. A case in point is the doorman who meets and greets guests as they arrive and offers thoughtful insights on exploring Portland.

Portland’s only AAA Four Diamond Hotel, the property, with 101 rooms and 16 suites, recently underwent an extensive renovation. Highlights include navy, khaki, and white nautical décor, custom-made Thomas Moser furniture, hardwood floors, individual pantries on each floor offering Starbucks touch-screen machines, a gracious lobby with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Portland’s Fore Street, and original artwork by Maine artists.

The BlueFin North Atlantic Seafood restaurant located within the hotel offers a varied menu of locally-caught seafood and seasonal dishes.
