MAY 20th – A swanky night of art, music, auctions, food and burlesque.


Yes, it’s true. We invited you all and you’re beating down the doors to get in. We have officially sold out for the VIP and General Admission tickets, but you may still be able to get into the late night dance party! We really want you there so….

Come by the Harbor Events Center on Friday night to see if there are $10 Dance Tickets still available.

Doors re-open at 9pm!

Get in on a little bit of the auction and dance the night away. The bar will still be open and the music a’playin’.


Ali Goodwin is battling aggressive breast cancer. She is well known throughout the Seacoast as an artist, photographer and sailor. Many friends and acquaintances have banded together to hold “ALIVE! A Swanky Night of Art, Music, Food and Burlesque” as a benefit to help Ali. As a self-employed person, she has limited health insurance, no disability insurance, and many life expenses that go above and beyond just her medical needs.

The evening includes live music from hip surf jazz duo Penhallow, hors oeuvres from restaurants like Anneka Jans in Kittery, Roost Cafe in Cape Neddick, Chef Evan Hennessey with Flavor Concepts, Tulsi Indian Restaurant in Kittery, DennyMike’s BBQ, Chef Duncan Boyd of Victory Restaurant fame, and more will delight the palate. A cash bar will be available with festive cocktails, wine and beer. A silent auction of over 100 items includes art, experiences, vacations, wine, food adventures, and so much more! Anyone wishing to still donate can do so HERE or download this form.

A highlight of the evening is the debut performance of the Seacoasts’ one and only Lady Luck Burlesque Troupe, a group of lovely and talented women performing in a retro combination of dance, theater, comedy, female empowerment and sensuality. The evening ends with a lively dance party with tunes spun by Rob Connelly from WXGR-FM, the Seacoast’s most progressive radio station, and if you’re lucky, you might share a dance with one of the sultry ladies of the Burlesque troupe.
