Thank you to our event sponsors:

SERVPRO of Bath-Brunswick, U.S. Cellular, Burgess Technology Services, Avita of Brunswick, Sunnybrook, Priority Real Estate Group, LLC & Southern Maine Community College.
Special thanks to our Decorating Sponsors Camden National Bank & Brunswick Hotel & Tavern.
Also a big thank you to our Prize Sponsors; Bath Savings, Coffee By Design, Day’s Jewelers & Shipyard Brewing Company.
Forwood Thinking is our Award Sponsor.
Simply Susie’s is our caterer and Cook’s Lobster & Ale House will be running the cash bar.
The 2017 theme for the Big Night Out is “WhoDunnIt? A Clue Inspired Evening”

Registration Update- Register Online/Pay at Door
The plan for this year’s Big Night Out is simple, please go online and register so we can have an accurate head count, then pay at the door the night of the event. Registration gets us a head count but also gets us the names for the custom name tags. Payments will be taken at registration by check, cash or credit card. If you need to be invoiced, we must know prior to the event so contact the office directly. Invoicing will not be allowed at registration, only through pre-registration. Tickets are $45.00 a piece.
The easiest way to register is to click on the scrolling event calendar on the top right of this homepage. We have made it the only event on the scrolling calendar so it is easy to find.
You can also find it by going to our online calendar or you can cut and paste this address in your address bar http://www.midcoastmaine.com/calendar/event/8891

If you are registering more than one person from your company, you can simply hit the ‘back’ button after registering, to enter the next name. Feel free to use one e-mail address for all attendees (meaning if I was registering myself and Kevin Clark, then I would register myself and submit it, then from the ‘thank you for registering screen’ I would hit the back button and register Kevin Clark and use my own phone number and e-mail instead of worrying about putting his). Finally, if you have any difficulty in registering, e-mail executivedirector@midcoastmaine.com and we can register you. The most important piece is that we have a head count sooner rather than later.

And the Honorees Are….
The slate of honorees who will be awarded at the Big Night Out are:
Large Business of the Year: Wayfair
Small Business of the Year: Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority
Volunteer of the Year: Barb Rapoza
Young Professional of the Year: Jake Korb
Excellence in Entrepreneurship (formerly New Business Venture of the Year): New Beet Market
Chairman’s Award: Sebasco Harbor Resort
Director’s Award: Linda MacMillan
Joshua L. Chamberlain Award: Joanne McMahon
Harry C. Crooker Lifetime Achievement Award: Don Spann
They are all so deserving and it should be an incredible evening.

Acknowledgements of Our Honorees
Each honoree will be given an award, a framed honorary certificate for the Joshua L. Chamberlain award and handmade pieces for our other winners created by our member woodworker David Barber of Forwood Thinking. In addition, we are highlighting our winners in a PowerPoint presentation that will run throughout the evening on the event night, through remarks during the awards presentation and in articles written for the Times Record.

Prizes & Booths
We have a great passport-style game we have created with “WhoDunnIt?” We have some outstanding prizes for the WhoDunnIt clue hunt and the for the costume contest. A judge will be going around to the booths and the attendees and will select the best dressed person or couple for the costume award. While the winner for WhoDunnIt will be selected from the winning guesses each person creates. Remember it’s a Clue-Inspired theme so think of the characters of the film and board game Clue. The WhoDunnIt is modeled after an actual game of Clue (including a murder!) The WhoDunnIt clue hunt is a free-event and winning is as easy as going to visit each booth space to find the killer.
Huge thanks goes to our prize sponsors: Bath Savings Institute, Coffee By Design, Day’s Jewelers & Shipyard Brewing Company. You won’t believe what you can win! (Bring a little extra cash as their will be a cash bar and one very cool raffle prize).

Lastly we still have 4-5 booth spaces available (which is not atypical for the week before the event). For $200 you can be a part of this showcase! If you are interested, please contact the SMMC office at executivedirector@midcoastmaine.com
