Because it will be FUN!

All proceeds will benefit the work of the UMFK Alumni Association. The Alumni Association is a fundraising support organization for the University of Maine at Fort Kent. Each year the UMFK Alumni Association hosts events bringing campus and community together. These events can be instrumental in students’ and local employers’ networking. The Alumni Association also provides financial support throughout the year to current students by awarding scholarships and helping with basic needs like food and clothing. The money raised will allow us to continue to provide scholarships and basic needs as well as encourage community involvement and networking by offering free and low-cost events on campus.


If you would like to sponsor an individual or team for this event, please contact the UMFK Development Office at (207) 834-7800.
