CeleSoirée supports ILAP’s direct legal services, education and outreach, and advocacy work throughout Maine. Every year, hundreds of supporters gather for an unforgettable evening that has been dubbed "Portland's Best Fundraiser." Guests enjoy a buffet catered by local immigrant-owned restaurants, a musical performance that highlights diverse cultural traditions, and have the opportunity to purchase tickets for a chance to win one of our high-end raffle items. ILAP is not eligible for most federal funding, which means that funds raised from this event are immediately used to support our programs.


Over 400 Attendees

Thanks to our sponsors, donors, and volunteers, more than 400 guests attend this event annually. The continued support we receive allows us to better serve our community.


Community Driven

When guests purchase their tickets, they are given the opportunity to sponsor a community ticket so that our friends in the immigrant community may attend free of charge.
