That’s right - it is time once again for the Howard Training Center’s annual CrabFest & Live Auction Fundraiser.  This will be the 24th year of this wonderful event.

Due to its continued popularity, we will be offering two separate nights of fabulous food, fun, and festivities – Friday, February 2, 2018, and Saturday, February 3, 2018. 

The theme  for this year's crabfest is WESTERN! so put on your cowboy boots and hats, and get ready for a great time!

The dinner will be a surf and turf offering of succulent northwest dungeness crab and seasoned tri-tip, accompanied by baked potatoes with all of the fixin’s, dinner rolls, salad,  and mouth-watering crab marinade and melted butter. A full no host bar will be staffed by the HTC Board of Directors waiting to meet your libation needs. And, don’t miss HTC famous Crabbie Cookies that are for sale each night!

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with dinner service beginning at 6:30 p.m.  Live music will be provided by Livin’, a live and silent auction will be held with an array of offerings, and raffle prizes galore!  The evening promises to be festive and fun for all and we are hoping that you will be able to join us.  Tickets are $50/person or sponsorship and table purchases are also still available.  For your convenience, a copy of the event flier is available below.  Sponsorships and tickets are available directly from Jason Lewis, HTC Fund Development Manager, at (209) 593-5618 or jlewis@howardtrainingcenter.com

With your participation and attendance at the 24th Annual CrabFest & Live Auction Fundraiser, the Howard Training Center will be able to continue to provide services that improve the quality of life for adults with developmental disabilities in Stanislaus County and fulfill our mission to create opportunity for each individual to hold a meaningful place in the community to the fullest extent that their abilities will allow.

We look forward to seeing you at the 24th Annual CrabFest & Live Auction Fundraiser, and to our continued partnership in building lives of choice, capability, and self-sufficiency for over 250 participants in three campuses throughout Stanislaus County.
