Benefit for the MLCA Lobstermen’s Relief Fund @ Cook's Lobster & Ale House
Sep 6 @ 11:30 am – 8:00 pm

The fourth annual Cook’s Lobster and Ale House Benefit for the MLCA Relief Fund is here! 

The MLCA supports a relief fund to benefit the distressed families and children of lobstermen experiencing hardship due to illness or tragedy.

10% of all food purchases all day will go directly the MLCA’s Lobstermen’s Relief Fund.  Local lobstermen, fishermen and local food companies are donating seafood and  lobster which will then be created into mouth-watering specials by Chef JB Dubois. The full price of these specials go entirely to the fund. Geary Brewing Company, Maine’s iconic and original brewer will be on hand with a classic ale and a brand new IP, Pulling Traps.  An all day silent auction will be on-going with donations from local restaurants, breweries, artists, inns, and businesses all about the water.  This event is for lobstermen and lobster-lovers alike, so come on down and enjoy a beautiful September evening on the water at Cook’s Lobster and Ale House! Boat tie-ups are available.

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.  You an find out more about the fund and the MLCA at
