Lobsters were the theme of the night during the 8th annual Dana Point Lobster Fest as a few hundred guests filled Doheny State Beach to enjoy a meal and raise money.

The annual fundraiser, put on by the Monarch Beach Sunrise Rotary Club, was held on Aug. 19 at Doheny State Beach to benefit a variety of charities.

Bands such as the Beach Buzzards and Video Star provided live entertainment throughout the night and casino games such as blackjack and craps were set up on the grass for the guests’ entertainment.

The lobsters were provided and cooked by San Pedro Fish Market, while appetizers from Ricardo’s Place were served.

Proceeds from the evening’s event benefit went to organizations such as Make-A-Wish Orange County and the Inland Empire, Boys & Girls Clubs of Capistrano Valley, Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group and other selected by the Monarch Beach Sunrise Rotary Club.
