What a magical evening we had at the Bolinas Community Center last Saturday! Delicious food and drinks, great music, tasty desserts, an awesome auction that raised our kitchen remodel project thousands of dollars and a beautiful community coming together! Thank you to all who came down to the feast, participated in the auction, donated money and helped make the evening happen.
There are a few very special people that were the brains of this evening: planning, organizing and executing the event. Without them the Crab Feast would’ve not been the success that it was. These ladies came to almost weekly meetings for a few months planning the feast, they built crab pot chandeliers, shopped, prepped foods, baked cakes and offered their valuable time for cooking auctioned off food prizes to benefit the BCC. And yes ladies and gentlemen, they volunteered all their time to make the Crab Feast happen.
A HUGE thank you to:
Tania Kleider with Humble Kitchen
Heidi Lundy with Blue Mason Catering
Becca Trivelpiece (Wild Onion Catering)
And Ida Severson

We had so many (close to 40) great volunteers that helped make this event happen, everything from setting up, breaking down, prepping foods, cooking crabs, serving, bar tending, picking up foods, goods and service wares and so much more. You all know who you are: THANK YOU!
Last but not least thank you High Tide Blues for the world-class music you provided for our event – you guys rocked the house!
We are waiting for final expenses and last auction payments to come thru, but we definitely grossed over $12,000 and netted close to $10,000. (We will let you all know exact numbers when we get them). What an event! Now we can finish our Phase One of the Kitchen Remodel Project!
