MLCA Relief Fund

The MLCA Relief Fund

The MLCA supports a relief fund to benefit the distressed families and children of lobstermen. The Relief Fund accepts public contributions which are deposited into MLCA’s savings account at TD Bank, located in Kennebunk, Maine. These funds are used to support fishing families in times of need.

Events

Cooks Lobster and Ale House, Bailey Island ME is hosting their second annual fundraiser for the Maine Lobstermen’s Community Alliance Relief Fund on Sunday August 13th, 2017 from 3 to 7 pm

 This is a family friendly event beginning with a Blessing of the Fleet following by music from the Coastal Outlaws. Fronted by Calender Island Seafood’s own John Jordan, this bluesy-rock band will bring some special guests along to keep toes tapping all evening. Have a beer from Maine’s original brewery D.L. Geary who will share a classic as well as a new brew.   20% of all food sales as well as all proceeds from a silent auction will be donated to the MLCA Relief Fund. This looks like a fabulous, fun evening!

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.
