---- — WEST NEWBURY — Don’t miss the third annual “Pentucket Rocks,” a steak and chicken barbecue held each summer to support the Pentucket Regional School District.

The event takes place Saturday, June 22, from 2 to 8 p.m. at the home of Pentucket alumna Sandy Berkenbush, 23 Farm Lane. It features oldies music, muscle cars and a silent auction with a wide variety of art, gift certificates and services, including a hummingbird feeder from Holland Hill Design, a lamp from Newburyport Lighting Company, a trip lobster hunting with Bill Palm, a week in paradise on Prince Edward Island and much more.

Tickets to “Pentucket Rocks” are $35 for adults, $15 for 6- to 16-year-olds, with no charge for children under 6 years. Admission includes food with a cash bar available on site.

All proceeds from the event go to the Pentucket Education Foundation, a nonprofit group that raises funds to maintain excellence in education for the six Pentucket schools. In the past funds raised by “Pentucket Rocks” were used to spearhead the “Wireless Technology Project” in 2011 and the “Civil to Civil” interdisciplinary project held at the high school last fall.
