Jazzing Up the Shipyard

The Boothbay Harbor Land Trust Concert Committee invites you to its only major 2012 fundraising event to be held at the Boothbay Harbor Shipyard on Thursday, August 16, 2012 from 5:00 PM to 7:30 PM.
Jazzing Up the Shipyard will be a very special night of unique jazz music featuring one of New York’s best jazz trumpeters, Marcus Printup of Jazz at Lincoln Center along with his wife Riza (Hequibal) Printup on the harp, Corcoran Holt on bass and Obed Calvaire on drums.

As part of the evening’s festivities, there will be a “not so silent” Silent Auction beginning at 5:00 PM and ending at 6:30 PM. The Auction will be limited to a maximum of 35 “priceless” items including lunch and a private walking tour of Portland for two with Historian Mr. John (Jack) B. Bauman (Author of Gateway to Vacationland: The Making of Portland, Maine) and a two-hour evening cocktail cruise for twelve aboard Mr. Paul Coulombe’s 112’ Westport Yacht Feelin Free.  A complete Silent Auction preview list will be available prior to the concert.  
For your pleasure, Boothbay Region Chefs will provide mouth watering “not to be missed” heavy hors d’oeuvres and an open bar serving some of the finest champagne, wines and liquors, which will be available throughout the event.
