The Grand Traverse Lighthouse Museum will host their annual Lobster Fest Fundraiser on Thursday, August 20th from 6:00pm – 9:00pm. The event benefits the lighthouse foundation restoration project and features a dinner with fresh Maine lobster (or chicken), redskin potatoes, corn on the cob, cherry brownies, slaw, coffee, iced tea, beer or Leelanau wine. Local favorite, Hugh Willey, will be providing the musical entertainment for the night.
In addition to the food and entertainment, there will be a silent auction. And the Coast Guard boat that was the launch for the North Manitou shoal crib will be on display. The boat was donated by the Northport Bay Boatyard, and has been restored. There will be a 15 minutes presentation on the boat.
Reservations are required and may be made by calling 386-7195. It’s an evening not to miss!
