After a two-year hiatus caused by pandemic regulations, the harvest ball is scheduled to return as an in-person event on Friday, Oct. 21, at the Holiday Inn by the Bay, 88 Spring St. in Portland.

The 14th edition of the ball, hosted by Bishop Robert Deeley, will include a social hour and silent auction, dinner and the music of The Carmine Band, according to a news release from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland.

All proceeds from the ball’s ticket sales and silent auction support the evangelizing mission of Harvest, the magazine of the Diocese of Portland, which is sent free of charge to thousands in Maine.
