Light Night event to be held Oct. 15 in Cambridge
CAMBRIDGE — The volunteer team planning the upcoming “Light Night” event from 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15, at the Cambridge Yacht Club, is aiming to develop the affair into an annual celebration of the Choptank River Lighthouse and what it means to the communities Cambridge and broader Dorchester County.
Nearly 20,000 people have visited the replica beacon since it opened four years ago. The event will feature dancing, auctions, heavy hors d’oeuvres, a sunset toast and much more.
Tickets are $50. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Cambridge Lighthouse Foundation, a nonprofit group whose mission is to promote and enhance the lighthouse.
