Help us make this a fun, successful event for all! Our Crab Feed and Silent Auction runs from 5pm-10pm, but we need extra help with set up and tear down! A little more specific - we will need individuals for set up, food prep, greeting/raffle/serving/clean up, and tear down. All volunteers will receive dinner (pizza, sorry, not crab!).

Tentatively, we are looking for help during three time slots*:

1pm-5pm: Set up for Crab Feed and Food/Crab prep
4pm-8pm: Event Prep and Crab Feed dinner duties
6pm-11pm: Crab Feed dinner duties and tear down

*Shifts are subject to change slightly. Volunteers will be notified prior to the event.
For more information or to sign up, please fill out the form below OR contact Natalie Steele.
