Giant lobster strolls down Main


Last updated 8/30/2007 at Noon

A giant lobster was recently seen walking Fallbrook’s Main Avenue, raising awareness for the upcoming Rotary Club of Fallbrook annual fundraiser, Lobster on the Green. The lobster, it was reported, was actually Rick Aldana, this year’s Rotary Club auction and silent auction chair.

“Lobster Aldana” visited every retail store on downtown Main, posting event flyers in windows and soliciting auction items from business owners. “There was generous support of the lobster effort,” he said. “If I missed someone, or there are others who would like to help support their community by contributing something to the auction, they can call me personally at (760) 728-3911.”

Lobster on the Green will be held Thursday, September 13, beginning at 5 p.m. at the Grand Tradition, 1602 South Mission Road. The event will feature “all-you-can-eat” steak and lobster (no take-home or containers), music, silent auction tables and a live auction. Renowned auctioneer Stephan Hamann will serve as master of ceremonies. For more information or to purchase tickets or make a donation, call (760) 510-0805.

County Supervisor Bill Horn is this year’s Platinum sponsor. Banc of America Investment Services, Inc. filled a Gold support position. Bob Tavano, with Banc of America Investment Services, is a member and past president of the Rotary Club of Fallbrook.

Also stepping up to the plate as event program sponsors are Grangetto’s of Fallbrook, Berry-Bell & Hall Fallbrook Mortuary, Inc., and Coldwell Banker Landmark Group. According to Sponsorship Chair Larry Rothacher, “It is not too late for others to step forward with their generous support of this event, which will benefit the entire community.”

Lobster on the Green, along with contributions from individual members of the Rotary, has provided more than $150,000 to local nonprofits in the last four years. More than $70,000 has been donated so far this year.

Nonprofits that have benefited from these funds include the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County, the Fallbrook Healthcare Foundation, the Fallbrook Music Society’s “Music for Youth” program, the Senior Citizens Help Project, Friends of the Fallbrook Library and Art Campus for Children.
