Lobstermen’s Relief Fund

The Lobstermen’s 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.


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 September 10th, 2017 from 4 to 8 pm

Join the MLCA , Cook’s Lobster and Ale House, Sysco Foods and Geary’s Brewing Company to raise money for the Lobstermen’s Relief Fund!

10% of all food purchases go directly the MLCA’s Lobstermen’s Relief Fund benefiting lobstering families and children experiencing hardship as a result of illness or tragedy.  Sysco foods and local lobstermen are donating steak, chicken, 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’s Brewing, Maine’s iconic and original brewer will be on hand with a classic ale and their new “OG” lager, and live music will resonate from the beautiful outdoor deck.  Lastly, a 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. The Maine Lobstermen’s Community Alliance is a 501c3 organization and all donations are tax-deductible.This is shaping up to be a fabulous, fun evening!

Moved by the 2016 tragic 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.


The MLCA accepts donations directly to the fund as well.  Please makes checks payable to MLCA Relief Fund, PO Box 315, Kennebunk ME 04043.    For more information, please contact Andi Pelletier at andi@mainelobstermen.org.
