Jeff Day, of Ice Designs, works on one of the ice bars Wednesday for Portland Harbor Hotel’s annual Icebar weekend, which raises money for Greater Portland nonprofits.

This year, the beneficiaries are:

• Rippleffect, an outdoor expeditionary program;

• Trauma Intervention Program, which provides emotional and practical support for victims of trauma;
