SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

It’s that time of year again; time for lobster that is.
Tickets are now on sale for the Monarch Beach Sunrise Rotary Club’s annual Lobster Fest. The event’s fifth installment will hit Doheny State Beach 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. Last year’s event sold out, so organizers are urging interested parties to buy early and save.
Early bird pricing is $75 per person. That rate is available until Thursday, July 31. After that the price rises to $85 and jumps to $100 at the door. Ticket costs include a steak, lobster and seafood dinner. 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.
