Join us for the 2018 JDRF Crab and Shrimp Feed! This year will be the 15th anniversary of the fundraiser, which directly benefits JDRF. JDRF uses the proceeds from the event to sponsor life-changing innovations and technologies in the field of Type 1 Diabetes research. The Crab Feed is one of our major fundraising sources — in fact, this year; we expect to surpass a total of $1 million raised at the event throughout the past 15 years.
Gary Marrone, JDRF Board Member and Event Chair, has been involved with the Crab Feed since its inception. He shared, “the Crab Feed has been fortunate to benefit from a long-standing partnership with Save Mart. Their employees and many of their vendors have been key to the events success. After so many years, even those that have retired still come to dine and volunteer!”
Mark Casale, a JDRF Board Member and the Executive Chef of Dos Coyotes, will work with his amazing team in the kitchen to deliver a delicious 5-course meal for 1,000 attendees. Guests will enjoy all-you-can-eat crab, shrimp, pasta, and salad. There will be a full bar, live and silent auction, and a large raffle with dozens of exciting prizes from a variety of donors and sponsors.
The event will take place at on Saturday, February 24, at the McClellan Conference Center. This event sells out each year, so make sure to purchase your tickets soon!
