Sea-Vu Campground Donates Over $20,000

Sea-Vu Campground recently completed their summer activities with their annual, fun-filled Labor Day weekend events. Donations totaling more than $20,000 were realized during the summer-long project, which encompasses many activities. Proceeds from the activities will be donated to the American Cancer Society of Maine.
During the summer, there are various events that range from yard sales and bike rides, to the campgrounds’ “Sea-Vu’s Got Talent.” Activities for fundraising efforts culminate each year with a variety of activities on Labor Day weekend. Included are children’s games, cookouts, ice cream socials, and the famous Labor Day Auction.
On Sunday, October 17th, Elaine Talevi presented a check to the American Cancer Society for more than $20,000. The presentation was made at 10am in Monument Square, Portland, at the start of the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk.
Sea-Vu Campground celebrated their 38th Anniversary this year. In addition to the original Sea-Vu Campground, the Talevi family has expanded their campground business to include Sea-Vu South Campground, owned by their son David and his wife Molly, as well as Sea-Vu West Campground, owned by their son Jason and his wife Lee.
A family-friendly business, the Talevi family supports the community in many ways. Every year, a “Happy Camper” scholarship is awarded to a Wells High School graduate. Their donations were also instrumental in furnishing the Urgent Care waiting room, the kitchen at the Senior Center, as well as numerous other contributions to the Wells community.
