CrabFest & Auction- Crackin' crab for Charity
As it has done for the last 18 years, the Los Gatos Rotary Club will again present their premier fund raising event "Crackin' Crab for Charity," This event is an "all you can eat" crab & pasta combined with exciting live and silent auctions.
The CrabFest will be held at St. Andrews private school in Saratoga on Saturday January 26 with doors opening 5pm and dinner service starts at 6pm. Rotary food coordinator, Tina Orsi-Hartigan, explains "Hundreds of pounds of fresh Dungeness crab will be trucked in from the Pacific northwest." served along side it will be pasta, soup, salad, and dessert by Nothing Bundt cakes.
John Pencer, the auctioneer, reports " I'm really excited about the terrific items I'll auction off this year." The live auction consists of travel getaway bargains such as Mexican cruises, a condo in Switzerland, ski villas in Tahoe and more. The extensive silent auction features dinners donated by upscale area restaurants and baskets of wine from local wineries. Of particular note, the wine available at the dinner will be from Testarossa Winery and Gali Vineyards.
"Get your tickets online early", advises Suzanne, co-chair "This event sells out every year. This is a great Christmas gift to give your family and friends. You can enjoy an evening together benefiting local and international charities after the busy holiday season.
It turns out that this occasion is an especially worthy cause because the profits go directly to local charities such as St Lukes's Pantry which feeds the area homeless. Many other beneficiaries are the Boy Scouts, student leadership development camps, and numerous local charities …the tickets are partially tax deductible.
