MARQUETTE — Captain Keith Colburn from the popular reality show, “The Deadliest Catch,” will be in Marquette on June 28-30 to host fundraisers to help build the new Steve Mariucci Family Beacon House.

Proceeds from all events will go toward the Beacon House Capital Campaign and a guest room will be named for the Deadliest Catch in Captain Keith Colburn’s honor, with the room decor reflecting the crab fisherman’s theme and photos.

All participants in the event will also be recognized at the new Beacon House “Deadliest Catch” room.

On June 28, Capt. Colburn and friend Jay Feely will accompany several fishing boats to Stannard Rock for a friendly fishing adventure.

That evening, a party at the Lake Superior Yacht Yard will include Captain Colburn, former NFL kicker Jay Feely, Steve Mariucci of the NFL Network, all the fishermen, as well as community members who come out to support the Beacon House. Elizabeth’s Chop House will be catering a lake trout and grilled chicken dinner at the boathouse, with music and entertainment by Double Trouble Entertainment.

On June 30, an 18-hole scramble will take place on Greywalls with Colburn, Feely and Mariucci, followed by a bbq rib and chicken dinner at the Marquette Golf Club clubhouse.
