Midcoast residents will have an opportunity to dine on a four-course lobster dinner, bid on donated objects and gift certificates, and revel in the antics of the Midcoast auctioneer, Rosey Gerry.

The auction and lobster dinner will include the swinging music of All That Jazz, the Friday night house band at the Elm St. Grille. The event will benefit the family of Kevin T. Moholland, Sr., 45, of Thomaston, cook at the Grille in Camden for the past 10 years. Moholland died suddenly on July 16, leaving his wife, Chandra, and six children.

The dinner and auction will be held Sunday, Sept. 18, at the American Legion Hall, 91 Pearl St., Camden. Dinner will include Elm St. Grille fish chowder, boiled lobster, clams, corn on the cob, potato, salads and desserts.

Moholland was renowned for his personality, his love of children, and his pizza-making skills. He worked at the Grille beside his brother, Jason Moholland, the restaurant’s owner.

Tickets for the dinner are $25 and will be sold in advance at the Elm St. Grille, 115 Elm St., Camden, and the Country Inn, Route 1, Rockport. The auction is open to the public and bids on silent auction items will begin at 4 p.m. along with viewing of the live auction items. The lobster dinner will be served at 5 p.m. and the live auction will start promptly at 6 p.m.

Donated items available for auction are too numerous to list and are still pouring in, but so far include a vintage Fender electric guitar and amp, lobsters, overnight stays at a local inn, gift certificates for meals at restaurants in Camden, Rockland and Thomaston; pizza, handyman services, a massage, autographed books by local authors, movie tickets and tools.

Anyone interested in donating items may contact the Elm St. Grille or the Country Inn.
