Benefit Party for the MLCA Relief Fund @ Cook's Lobster & Ale House
Aug 13 @ 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm

The second Annual Cook’s Lobster and Ale House Benefit Party for the MLCA Relief Fund is here! 

The MLCA supports a relief fund to benefit the distressed families and children of lobstermen.

Tickets are $50 and include a lobster, steak or chicken dinner,  two beer tickets and  Geary’s pint glass, live music and access to  a silent auction  with trips, gift certificates, hotel or inn stays, art and so much more!  Proceeds will be donated to the MLCA Relief Fund. The day kicks off with a  Blessing of the Fleet at 3 pm followed by live music by the Coastal Outlaws and front man John Jordan. Delicious  food and beer provided by Sysco, local lobstermen and Maine’s own original beer company D.L. Gearys with their signature beer and brand new lager “OG”.

Moved by the 2016 death of young lobsterman Jon Popham, Cook’s Lobster and Ale House  began what they hope will be a yearly event to benefit the MLCA Relief Fund
