Private jet, spending cash & NYC: The Maine Suitcase Party

Written by: Shannon Bryan - mainetoday.com editor - sbryan@mainetoday.com

Not everyone wants to win a trip to New York City, be flown there by private jet, and get handed a wad of spending cash to do with as they see fit. But for those who might absolutely, heck yes, totally want that: The Maine Suitcase Party.

Here’s how it works: You pack a suitcase for the weekend and show up to the party, along with a bunch of other hopeful travelers who also arrived with a packed suitcase. You walk the red carpet, eat, drink, dance, maybe pick up a few things in the silent auction. And at 9 pm, there’s a grand prize drawing to determine which lucky duo gets to climb into the private jet and get whisked away to the city – THAT NIGHT.

This year’s party, put on by the folks at Keller Williams Realist and benefiting Camp Sunshine, is on Sept. 27 from 7-11 pm at Maine Aviation’s private hangars at the Portland International Jetport.

And those folks sadly left behind still get to party and maybe win getaways to other spots (and be driven by limousine immediately after the event).
