It’s Crab Season: Claws for a Cause

Original post made by Anna Schaller, Stoneridge, on Jan 11, 2023

As you may not know, crabs don’t walk in a straight line; instead, they walk sideways swaying back and forth to make forward progress. It is how and where their legs are attached. With crabbing season in full force, those legs have to work harder to escape the crabbers looking for them. Turns out those legs are very tasty, and if we can catch some of these dancing crabs, they will be served up at the 2nd annual crab feast hosted by the Assistance League® of Amador Valley.

Not to sideline the crabs, but they – and those of you who join us – are helping a bigger cause. This crab feast will raise funds for programs that help raise up others in our community. Beneficiaries include Tri-Valley Haven, which receives food twice a week from our fundraising, Title-9 schools participating in back-to-school shopping for over 300 local children, and birthday bags for children in shelters/foster care. The generous nature of individuals like you make it possible for us to help local people in need move in a forward direction.

Come join us on Saturday, February 4th, at the Pleasanton Senior Center for a night of good food, good company, and a good cause. It will be a fun evening with opportunities to win gift baskets, desserts, and dance the night away. Tickets are available until January 20th at Web Link
