GetMaineLobster.com will participate in this year’s Dempsey Challenge “Courage Fest” Celebration on Friday, October 11 in downtown Lewiston, Maine. The event commences at 4 p.m. (EST) on Friday. There will be a wide range of events held throughout the weekend with the closing ceremonies led by Patrick Dempsey taking place on Sunday, October 13, at 3:30 p.m.
The Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing provides free support, education and integrative medicine services to anyone impacted by cancer. The Dempsey Center offers a warm and inviting atmosphere and contains a cancer resource center and lending library, integrative medicine rooms, a Healing Garden, private consult rooms, a health and fitness room, wig room, demo kitchen, and dedicated space for cancer support group meetings and educational programs. One hundred percent of the money raised during this run, walk and cycle fundraising experience benefits the Dempsey Center.
Those attending the event will get the chance to meet GetMaineLobster.com team members. From its vending table, the team will serve Get Maine Lobster’s renowned Curry Lobster Roll with Shaved Vegetables. This delicious lobster roll has been served at Chase Bank’s Chef’s Tables in New York, Philadelphia, Detroit and Chicago, and is a huge hit with seafood lovers. GetMaineLobster.com will serve 150 mini lobster rolls, charging $5.00 for each, and hold a drawing to win six live Maine lobsters at its vending table.
“We're excited to be a part of this worthy cause, having all been touched by cancer in our lives,” says GetMaineLobster.com founder and owner Mark Murrell. “Our hope is that our participation combined with others’ will make the statement to those either suffering from cancer or caregiving for a loved one with cancer that they are not alone. We’re with them in spirit.”
