 During the excitement of the Maine State Basketball Championships, Camden National Bank announced they would be supporting the boys and girls teams within its footprint who made it into the 2018 championship games. The donations were dedicated to making game tickets or bus transportation free for students so that they could cheer on their teams. Camden National Bank has carried on this tradition for nine years now, and this year they donated over $7,500.

“We are pleased to support our top high school basketball teams again this year,” said Greg Dufour, president and CEO, in a news release. “We know how important the championship games are to not only the basketball teams, but also the larger community and student body, and our goal is to make it possible for students to attend and rally behind their teams.” 

With Camden National Bank’s donation, free tickets and transportation were available for hundreds of Maine high schoolers who traveled to the Championship games in Portland, Bangor, and Augusta.

“We recognize how essential active lifestyles and athletics are for Maine students, and we also love to participate in a healthy dose of friendly competition that brings together communities across the state. Congratulations to all of the fantastic teams who competed in the Championship Games this year!”
