Crab Feed Event a Success

The Encinal High School (EHS) Athletic Boosters hosted the 22nd Annual Crab Feed Saturday, March 5th at the Alameda Officer’s Club.

More than 300 people attended the event, which had its 2021 iteration canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The event had both silent and live auctions, a raffle, a balloon pop and a wheel of fortune. Over 50 student-athlete volunteers made the evening possible, while serving more than 700 pounds of crab.

The Encinal Dance Club did a live performance to an attentive audience, and Encinal’s Kevin Gorham and EHS parent, Laura Palmer led a lively dessert and live-auctions with the finale item a Puerto Vallarta vacation stay at a home donated by WesCafe.

Booster’s Board Member Tina O’Shea was the auction chair, and Boosters Board President, Todd Roloff commented, “We are amazed at the community response to this event. The Board wasn’t sure we were going to move forward with an in-person event until just six-weeks ago. And, while numbers aren’t officially calculated yet, this could be the best fundraising year for the Crab Feed ever!”

All proceeds benefit EHS’ sports programs.
