One of the first crab feeds of the year in the area, organizers of the Escalon Kiwanis Club Crab Feed said they are nearly sold out of tickets.
“We only have 25 left,” coordinator Pam Dyer said on Monday, with the event scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 20 at the Escalon Community Center. The crab feed can host up to 312 diners.
Ticket prices are $50 per person, while a reserved table for eight is $550 but also includes eight wine glasses, 16 drink tickets, business advertisement and a business card on the placemats.
This year marks the 14th annual event and along with the dinner, there are both live and silent auction items up for bid, as well as a pie auction. There will also be drawings for door prizes and a 50/50 raffle. Among the auction items featured this year will be a Traeger pellet grill, a 10-drawer Craftsman roller tool chest, a mountain bike, and catered dinners from two different vendors.
“We will also have lots of great raffle items including a Keurig coffee maker, propane turkey fryer, digital slow cooker and many more,” said Dyer.
Dinner will include crab, pasta, salad, rolls, an ice cream cup for dessert and each table will get one white and one red bottle of wine.
Tickets are available by contacting Dyer at 209-401-8496.
