One of our favorite charity events to participate in each year in the Lobster Extravaganza. This annual event supports Life with Cancer®, which works to enhance the quality of life of those affected by cancer through providing education, information and support.
At this year’s event, held May 6, 2017, Ford’s Fish Shack donated a private gourmet dinner for ten, prepared and served in the winner’s home by our Owner and Executive Chef, Tony Stafford. The dinner includes the freshest seafood from the docks, paired with wines and microbrews to compliment each course. We are THRILLED to share that this item raised $4,500 at auction for this incredible organization!
We feel so incredibly blessed to be able to give back to this community which has shown us so much love since opening our first location in 2010. And many thanks to everyone who joined us for this year’s Lobster’s Extravaganza!
