The 34th Annual “Stayin’ Strong and Crabbing’ Along” feed

January 22, 2021

A Virtual Celebration of Local Musicians and 90 years of Rotary Serving the River Communities will be held Saturday, January 30, 6 p.m. (The evening opens with a "social hour" featuring a showcase of West County musicians along with a community chat. Auction festivities begin at 7 p.m.) 

Let there be crab!! 

 The small but mighty Russian River Rotary Club has been hard at work adapting to the new normal. Having decided to carry on with their largest fundraiser of the year with some 2021 adjustments, they are proud to present their virtual 34th annual “Stayin’ Strong and Crabbing’ Along” Feed!

The virtual show and auction will begin at 6pm on Saturday, January 30th with a social hour featuring a showcase of talented West County musicians impacted by Covid 19. (Note that the silent auction will include a “Sponsor a Musician” section where you can provide a grant to one of the featured performers.) The first hour also features a “community chat” to give you a chance to catch up with friends, ask questions and get registered for the auction (which you can also do in advance).  

Auction festivities begin at 7 p.m. and will once again feature auctioneer extraordinaire, Senator Mike McGuire. Other highlights include a fun tribute to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Russian River Rotary Club and a dance contest where you can vote with your dollars for your favorite booty-shaking Rotarian. 

While the January 30th show will be virtual, the crab dinner is “real!” Order your dinner by January 21 and pick it up at the Luther Burbank Center drive-thru on January 30th between 1 and 4 p.m. As a special treat, you will be serenaded by the international phenom, Carlos Reyes, who is a virtuoso on the violin and Paraguayan harp. (And if you want more of Carlos, you can bid during the live auction for him to perform a private concert in your own backyard!) 

RSVP now to claim your free ticket and order your crab dinner! Silent auction bidding opens on January 25th at
