Camden, Maine, March 06, 2018 – 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.

“We are very pleased to support our top high school basketball teams again this year,” said Greg Dufour, President & CEO. “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.
