The Valentine's Day Crab Feed, presented by Moraga Valley Kiwanis, was a resounding success by any measure. A sell-out crowd at Saint Mary's College Soda Center first engaged in an active silent auction and then enjoyed an unlimited supply of fresh crab and Caesar salad for dinner. Before dessert local celebrity Dick Callahan led a spirited live auction of cakes donated by Gayle Somers and Aly Dean Miller of Home/Made Kitchen Café & Bakery. Other major sponsors who contributed generously to the evening's success included Alamo Capital Investment Services, Bay Alarm, Fenton's Creamery, Neighborhood Computers and Saint Mary's College.
Celebrity tables were headed by Mayor Roger Wykle, Police Chief Bob Priebe, Assembly member Catharine Baker, former Assembly member Joan Buchanan, Brother Mel of Saint Mary's College, and sports announcer Callahan.
The annual Crab Feed is one of two major fundraisers for Moraga Valley Kiwanis. All proceeds from the events are donated to local charities that focus their activities on children's needs, including the educational foundations of our three local communities. The club donates close to $50,000 annually to these charities.
