This Time of Year, It's Good to Get Crabby

Crab Feed season is here in Campbell. Here are a few feeds happening this month and next.

 

Benefits for schools, community, and did we mention bottomless crab?

It's about that time when local organizations in Campbell host their annual crab feed fundraising events. 

This Saturday, Feb. 9 the Country Women's Club of Campbell and the Campbell United Methodist Church are both holding their feeds.

The Country Women's Club is on its 17th annual event, the biggest fundraising effort for the 100-year-plus service club in the Orchard City.

"This is a really important event and I'm really proud of being part of that," says Ursula Smith, Country Women's Club of Campbell member. "People just have tremendous fun."

The event takes place at the Orchard City Banquet Hall the Campbell Community Center on Feb. 9 at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are still available, at $50 each and include bottomless crab and drinks and benefits local high schools. Call Smith at 408-377-2371 for tickets.

"We also fund both music and art competitions for the high school students," Smith says.

Along with the food, there will also be a silent auction and, according to Smith the gift baskets are "breathtakingly beautiful."

The Campbell United Methodist Church is holding its first annual Fat Saturday, all-you-can-eat crab fest on Feb. 9, 5:30 p.m. The event costs $35 for adults, $10 for children 17 and under and includes all-you-can-eat crab and pasta.

The event will also have live music by Groove yard Shift. Silent auction items, including theater tickets, local restaurant gift certificates and more benefit the ministries of the church.
