Lobstermen in Maine have been hit hard by Covid-19. A concert on the ocean this weekend is planned to help.

Protect Maine’s Fishing Heritage Foundation (PMFHF) is holding a live concert on the ocean to raise money for Maine lobstermen on Sunday, August 2.

The COVID relief fundraiser will be matched dollar for dollar up to $25,000 by the foundation.

You can't get any more socially distanced then the waters of Casco Bay. Turd Pollock from Chebeague Island will be entertaining you, and they are volunteering their time to help.

PMFHF President Rock Alley said,

Lobstermen are hurting. We felt with the mission of our organization this was a good place to start.  Some lobstermen have received PPP loans but the amounts have been small and run out quickly. It will be a great day to have a little fun and enjoy the music and raise money for a good cause.

Don't have a boat? No worries, you can catch it live streamed on Facebook, starting at  1:00 pm until 3:00pm.

But you are more than welcome to drop anchor on the southeast side of Chebeague Island at the float where the concert will be.

Every single dollar that is donated will go to directly to lobstermen and their families. Lobstermen do a lot for Maine's economy and they are in trouble. Let's have a little fun while we help them out.

Listen Live on Facebook. You can donate on Facebook or through the PMFHF website.
