Cook’s Lobster and Ale House will host a benefit for Orr’s Island lobsterman Mark Wilson and his family on March 7.

Orr’s Island lobsterman Mark Wilson suffered a stroke recently while at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. He received immediate care but remains hospitalized at Mass General.

Wilson is well known in the Harpswell fishing community and a regular supplier of lobster to a variety of businesses, including Cook’s Lobster and Ale House on Bailey Island. To support Wilson and his family in their time of need, Cook’s, in partnership with the Orr’s and Bailey Islands Fire Department, will hold a benefit dinner on Tuesday, March 7.

The buffet dinner will run from 4-8 p.m. at a price of $25 per person, with the proceeds from the meal going directly to the Wilson family.

Wilson’s friends and family have also set up an online fundraiser, where donations and messages of support can be shared: As of the morning of Sunday, Feb. 19, the fundraiser has brought in more than $40,000.

Both fundraisers aim to help the family with medical expenses and the cost for Wilson’s family to stay in a hotel near the hospital.
