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.
