John Syrett Lobster Bake - 2017

Goal thermometer

The Knox County Democratic Committee will hold our annual John Syrett Lobster Bake on Sunday August 20th from 4 - 7 pm at the waterfront home of Ken and Barbara Wexler at Owl’s Head, Maine. Our speaker selections are not yet been finalized. This is a great opportunity to honor a friend, show our candidates how much we support them, eat lobster and have a great time with new and old Democratic friends. What could be better????

While this is one of our major fundraising events, we keep the price low so many of our active members and volunteers are able to attend. As a result, most of our profit comes from sponsors of the event. There are five levels of sponsorship: Silver ($125), Gold ($250), Platinum ($500), Diamond ($1000) and Plutonium ($2000). Will you help elect Democratic candidates by becoming a sponsor of this event? As a sponsor you will receive two tickets to the event [four tickets for Diamond and Plutonium sponsors] and your generosity will be recognized on our invitations and at the Bake.

If you would like your business to be listed as a sponsor, please call Stu Thro at 207-594-8611. If you are not able to sponsor but would like to attend, tickets are available for $35 each and must be purchased in advance. Questions? Please call Bonnie Post at 207-594-9263 or email her at
