Like this painting? It’s called “EZDUZ IT” and it’s an original acrylic painting by Susan Tobey White. It will be up for auction at the Belfast Maine Rotary Club’s Belfast Harborfest Evening By the Bay event. All proceeds from the live and silent auctions will benefit our organization and we will be there at the event helping with the auction, serving some of the delicious local foods and beverages, and listening to live music. Come see us there! Gates open Friday, August 16, at 5:30pm on the green by the Belfast Boathouse.
The event will take place under the tent at Steamboat Landing, Becca Dean Biggs will headline Harbor Fest’s Evening by the Bay. Biggs is a singer/songwriter who pours raw emotion and shares life experience in her work. The music ranges from painful honesty to dark and playful storytelling. The sound is energetic and a blend of twangy, indie, alt rock and pop. Along with singing, she plays electric banjo and will be accompanied by Dan Miller (Leaky Boot Jug Band) and Jake Greenlaw (Toughcats).
The Evening by the Bay is a party with a purpose: to raise funds for WCAP’s Mid-Coast Public Transportation program, specifically for those seeking transportation through the program for kidney dialysis.
Many people access WCAP for public transportation for transportation to work, local businesses, and more. Many patients use it to access medical appointments and treatment. For kidney dialysis patients, treatment consists of being at the dialysis clinic three times per week for approximately four to five hours each time. These patients are not able to drive themselves to treatment as the treatment is exhausting. Some of these patients cannot pay the additional cost associated with transportation to treatment. The Evening by the Bay proceeds from the auction will provide funds to support dialysis patients who might otherwise be unable to afford transportation.
Tickets to the Evening by the Bay are $25 per person or $45 per couple. The event runs from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Steamboat Landing under the tent.
