Save the date of Aug. 1 for the second annual Newport Beach Lobsterfest sponsored by the Rotary Club of Newport Beach Sunrise. The Lobsterfest will be held at the Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort and Marine on Newport Beach's Back Bay beginning at 4 p.m. for beach time and silent auction, and 6 p.m. for the lobster dinner.

"While there are always growing pains with any new event, this year's will be even better than last year," said Rotarian Laura Dietz. "VIP tables will include premium wines, choice of whole lobster or lobster tail and tri-tip, side dishes, no-host bar, a separate entrance, free valet parking, and a special ambience away from the crowds but near the water on a hard surface."

VIP seating comes at a price of $150 while the regular ticket costs $75, which still includes lobster, tri-tip, side dishes and no-host bar plus $10 per car for parking. The Newport-Mesa Schools Foundation is the lead beneficiary, with 10% of all ticket sales be made to the foundation. The funds raised at the Lobsterfest will also go to help many other local nonprofit organizations, said Rotarian Carl Lachman.
