A taste of Maine will be on the menu Saturday at Compo Beach when the Westport Rotary stages its third annual LobsterFest.
The charity fundraiser is planned from 3 to 7 p.m., featuring music and performances by a magician.
Diners can choose from two Maine lobsters or a sirloin steak, and the meal includes side dishes, plus free beer, wine and soda, according to the Rotary. A cash raw bar also will be offered.
Children's meals and vegetable burgers also will be available, Rotary said in a news release.
The event last year attracted 1,200 guests, and the club said it expects more this year.
"This is a great community event for family fun or to relax with friends," Steve Lewine, the group's president, said in the club's publicity.
Tickets are $45; $10 for children ages 3 to 12. They are available at www.westportrotary.org. Parking is free.
Rotary said all proceeds would benefit local charities that it supports.
According to club spokesman Tony McDowell, nonprofits it funded last year included A Better Chance of Westport, CLASP Homes, Westport First Night, INT Coastal, Homes for Hope, Levitt Pavilion for the Performing Arts, Project Return, Staples High School Candlelight Concert, Westport EMS, Westport Historical Society and others.
O'Neill appeared on the short-lived NBC reality series "Clash of the Choirs" in 2007 as a lead singer for a vocal group.
