Portland Harbor Hotel’s Ninth Annual Ice Bar, held in late January, raised $18,000 for three nonprofit organizations.
The beneficiaries of the event this year are The Trauma Intervention Program of Portland, the Root Cellar, and Share Our Strength of Southern Maine.
The funds raised surpassed last year’s event, which raised $15,000 for charity.
Since the hotel started charging admission to the ice bar four years ago, the event has raised a total of $63,000 for Portland-area nonprofits, according to Gerard Kiladjian, the hotel’s general manager.
