Rotary Club’s annual benefit for area nonprofits just two weeks away
By Andrea Papagianis
Time is running out.
With just two weeks to go until the Monarch Beach Sunrise Rotary Club’s annual Lobster Fest hits the beachside picnic areas at Doheny State Beach, organizers are urging people to get their tickets sooner rather than later because last year’s event sold out early.
The event’s fifth installment will be held on Saturday, August 16 at 4 p.m.
Proceeds raised at the event benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Boys & Girls Clubs of Capistrano Valley, Dana Point 5th Marine Support Group and other local charities. Attendees can also sponsor a lobster feast for a Camp Pendleton-based Marine.
Tickets are $85 and jump to $100 at the door the day of the event. Each ticket includes a steak, lobster and seafood dinner, complete with corn, potatoes and lots of butter for lobster dunking.
Seats at tables with complimentary beer, wine and cocktails are available for $150. There will be a no-host bar, silent auctions and live music and dancing throughout the evening.
