THE FOOD: Executive Chef Harley Smith's culinary talent celebrates the bounty of the sea and the land using the freshest ingredients to create a delicious Cuban-inspired menu.

THE ENTERTAINMENT: With rave reviews of the live performances at last year's fundraiser, rest assured the entertainment this year will equally impress! We are thrilled to announce that local favorite "Cuppa Joe" will be performing featuring: Josh Babcock, Max Pearl, Geoff Raywood, Chuck Walker, Steve Baker, Roger Ebacher, and John Hyde.

THE AUCTIONS: Our live auction is always a lively one, this year being lead by KISS 108's Rich DiMare! Many sought-after experiences up for grabs like our ever-popular "Yankee Homecoming Nights" and weekend getaways to places like Nantucket Island. In addition, the silent auction will once again feature dozens top-notch items donated by generous local businesses.
