This year’s tournament benefited the two Mount Desert Island food pantries with event proceeds divided equally between the two organizations, resulting in donations of $5,250 each.

Bar Harbor Food Pantry and Westside Food Pantry, have provided healthy food, household products, and supplement vouchers to our neighbors in need for decades.  Their operations are heavily supported by volunteerism and donations.  These organizations make an impact on individuals and families struggling to provide for themselves and their loved ones.

Bar Harbor Food Pantry is located at 36 Mount Desert Street in Bar Harbor and has been aiding the community since 1994.  Westside Food Pantry opened its doors in 1990 and operates out of the Harbor House Community Center on Main Street in Southwest Harbor.  Learn more about the great work these organizations do for our community by visiting their websites: www.barharborfoodpantry.org and www.westsidefoodpantry.org
