Sierra College hosts annual Crab and Shrimp Feed

-A +A

The Sierra College Patrons and Sierra College Aquatics Program are once again teaming up to host an evening of great food, a silent auction and an exciting raffle.

The "Feed" will begin with salad, pasta, bread and cracked crab and shrimp, and end with coffee and plates of homemade cookies. There will be a no-host bar.

The Crab and Shrimp Feed will be held from 6-10 p.m. Friday, Feb. 15, at the Historic Blue Goose fruit sheds, 3550 Taylor Road, Loomis.

The silent auction put on by the Sierra College Patrons is known for the stunning, valuable, and frequently handmade original art objects offered. Included will be antiques, jewelry, sculpture, pottery and household items. There is also a large and popular raffle with a variety of items, including food-themed “treasure baskets.”

The Sierra College Patrons, a branch of the Sierra College Foundation, is a group dedicated to promoting the arts and humanities at the college and providing cultural enrichment to the community. Proceeds from patron-sponsored events are used to benefit these programs in the form of grants and scholarships awarded to Sierra College students, and to support arts and humanities programs. The Patrons, founded in 1984, currently have close to 50 members. A portion of the funds collected from this event will help them continue with the services they provide.

This annual fundraising event helps support the aquatics program at Sierra College. The cost is $45per person. The deadline to purchase pre-paid reservations is Feb. 8, and no checks will be accepted after this date. Reservations must be purchased in advance, and none will be sold at the door. Reservations must be paid for by the deadline.
