Our first-ever virtual fundraiser was a huge hit!
We didn’t let a little thing like a global pandemic stop us from serving our community over the past year, and we certainly didn’t let it get in the way of our annual fundraiser. Just like we found new ways to safely care for our patients over the past year, we found a safe, fun, and different way to celebrate our traditional Crab & Wine Days.
This year, we went online with our first Crab Cake Cook-Along & Wine Tasting Sip-Along, streamed live and hosted by our friends at Little River Inn. Award-winning chefs prepared delectable crab cakes as our audience watched or cooked along with the culinary artistes. Some even shared their crab cake “unselfies” with us!
The show was emceed by popular Bay Area TV personality Roberta Gonzales and our beloved former Sheriff Tom Allman was back as our Auctioneer Extraordinaire. If you missed it, you can still enjoy all the fun here:
Not only did everyone have a great time, we have raised a gross of $75,000 so far! More than $35,000 has been donated to the Fund-the-Future pledge drive to help us pay for the many and ongoing costs of providing COVID-19 vaccines and testing to our community members. We are so grateful to everyone who donated so generously and everyone who helped us to pull off this fantastic, innovative event!
