PORTSMOUTH — The Isles of Shoals Steamship Company will kick off its 2013 season with a fund-raising party for the Make-A-Wish Foundation aboard the M/V Thomas Laighton on Saturday, May 4.

The party starts at 6:30 p.m. with a free photo booth, drink specials and dancing. The ship will leave for a two-hour sunset cruise at about 7:30 p.m. Attendees must be age 21 or older. Entertainment will include music by DJ Terry Moran.

Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has given hope, strength and joy to children with life-threatening medical conditions. It grants a child's wish in the United States every 40 minutes. The Isles of Shoals Steamship Company plans to donate 20 percent of ticket sales to the local chapter of Make-A-Wish Foundation and party attendees are encouraged to make cash donations, which will be submitted to the foundation after the cruise.
