2022 GCA Crab Feed Update

The COVID-19 Pandemic has continued to make planning future GCA events difficult. Several factors are contributing to the Crab Feed Committee’s decision to cancel the traditional 3 night-stand at the Horton Center for 2022.

We cannot predict the pandemic status in the future. Selling tickets, signing-up volunteers, purchasing auction basket materials, sanitization, and setting up vaccination validation protocol for all attendees presents a myriad of challenges. We don’t even know if we will have access to the Grapeview Fire Department’s building.   The current price of crab has increased significantly which could pose a threat to having a profitable event.

Last February, we did successfully execute a “Drive-Thru” crab feed. It’s too early to tell whether we can pull this off again in 2022, but we will be looking at it over the next couple of months.

Thank you,

Phil Stewart, Co-Chair 2022 GCA Crab Feed

2020 GCA Crab Feed - Event Recap! 

The recent 2020 GCA Crab Feed (February 13th, 14th, 15th) was again a sold-out success. The GCA chairs for this fun event would like to thank all of the GCA members and their guests who attended and enjoyed the All-You-Can-Eat Crab!

We also would like to thank all the volunteers from the GCA who planned the event, sourced and delivered the supplies, food and crab; helped with tickets; created the raffle baskets; sold raffle tickets; helped with the hall setup and cleanup each day; and staffed the event -- from the parking lot help to the servers, the crab wranglers and the kitchen staff! Our volunteers always have a great time serving and taking care of our guests, so don't miss this great volunteer opportunity next year.

We wish to also thank the sponsors for their generous donations which helped in so many ways to put on this event.

A special thank you to our event co-chairs, Louise Okonek and Phil Stewart, and to the 2020 Crab Feed Committee members who again put together a great team of volunteers to ensure the success of our event!

The GCA Crab Feed is an important fund raiser for our association as the proceeds benefit a number of great causes in our community. Funds raised from the GCA Crab Feed and other GCA events support the Grapeview School, North Mason High School Scholarships, Faith In Action, The Coalition of Churches and Community “Food for Kids Backpack Program”, North Mason Food Bank, Senior Services for South Sound among other community supported programs.

The GCA would again like to thank all of the attendees, our generous volunteers, as well as all of the event sponsors. -- We hope to see you all again next year!
