Elks’ crab feed helps fund shopping spree

Provided to the Tribune

South Lake Tahoe Elks Lodge 2094 will present its 25th annual all-you-can-eat crab feed fundraiser Dec. 10 at the lodge, 1635 Elks Club Drive. The lounge opens at 5:30 p.m. and dinner will be at 7 p.m.

Dinner will include fresh Dungeness crab from Oregon, clam chowder, cole slaw and garlic bread. The event will feature entertainment and music for dancing by Dave Fabrizio. Tickets are $35 and may be purchased in advance at Chris’ Cafe in Meyers and Key’s Liquor. They will also be available at the door. For home delivery of five or more tickets or more information call Larry at (530) 541-4879.

All proceeds benefit disadvantaged children in South Lake Tahoe. For the past three years, Elks members have taken deserving children on a Christmas shopping spree at the South Lake Tahoe Kmart. The children have $100 to spend in any manner they choose and the management at Kmart has generously given the children an additional 10 percent discount on their purchases. Efforts are coordinated through the South Lake Tahoe Women’s Center in choosing the children who participate in the shopping spree.

“In the 2004 Christmas season, the Elks were able to take 10 children on this spree. The looks of gratitude on the faces of the children and their parents, the tears in their eyes and the tears in our eyes makes this a very special occasion for all of us,” said Larry Welch, Lake Tahoe Elk Lodge 2094 exalted ruler. “We have been told by the Women’s Center that without our help, these children would not have had a Christmas.”
