Crab Feed 2020
Crab Feed 2020 is only 2 weeks away!

Thanks to those who have already signed up to help!

Those who have not yet signed up, your help is still very much needed.

Here are some ways you can help:

  • On the weekend of February 1 and 2, we again have a table at St. Charles to sell tickets after every mass. If you go to mass at St. Charles, please consider signing up to help for a few minutes. Last weekend, NOBODY signed up to help PGK Dennis Lundbom sell tickets. Please do not let this be the case again next week.

  • If you have sporting event tickets (sports, performances), condos, timeshares, art, jewelry, services, please consider making a donation to the council and we will use it to raise funds during the auction.

  • If you would like to purchase a sponsorship of the event as marketing for your business or know of someone who could be a sponsor, please let us know.

  • You can also help visit vendors around Livermore to solicit donations that we can use for the auction and raffles.

  • Lastly, sign up to help during the event! It is always a blast and a god time to catch up with brothers that you may not have seen in a while!

To sign up to help sell tickets at St. Charles and during the event, please click on the links below. For sponsorships, donations and any other help you can offer, please contact PKG Dennis Lundbom.
