Local and nationally known sports legends and Hall of Famers are making arrangements to meet in Boothbay for the 29th annual Boothbay Charities Classic golf tournament, lobster bake and sports auction, Sept. 27 and 28. Mark the dates for this exciting event and all proceeds will go to benefit Special Olympics Maine. Whether it’s football, baseball, hockey, racing or golf, we will likely have something for the sports fan in you.
The festivities will kick off on Friday afternoon, Sept. 27 with a New England lobster and clam bake. The lobster bake will take place under the Big Top Tent at the Boothbay Railway Village beginning at 4 p.m. All participating celebrities of the tournament will be present at the bake, as well as in attendance during the live sports auction that will take place immediately following dinner. One of the newest donations to the live auction is a pair of tickets to the New England Patriots vs. Dallas Cowboys game on Nov. 24 – 50-yard line on the Patriots’ side of the field!
