Yolo Crisis Nursery 10th Annual Crab Feed is set for February 19th.
Come out of your shell!

It is crab season, and that means the 10th Annual Yolo Crisis Nursery Crab Feed is just around the corner! We’ve gone virtual this year and are planning an evening of food, fun, and fundraising on Saturday, February 19, 2022.

This year’s Yolo Crisis Nursery Crab Feed will be a virtual shell-ebration like no other! The Friends of the Yolo Crisis Nursery have successfully produced this event since 2013 and are committed to creating a memorable and one-of-a-kind experience again this year.

Each dinner includes delicious fresh crab, Caesar salad, pasta with vegetarian red sauce, and breadsticks. Each meal also comes with a chance to win a fabulous door prize. Here’s how it works: first order online at www.yolocrisisnursery.org then on Saturday, Feb. 19, between 3:30 and 5:30 p.m., drive through for a masked, contactless, dinner pick-up at the University Park Inn and Suites Conference Site, 1121 Richards Boulevard, in Davis.

You can then return home to enjoy your dinner and favorite beverage at your leisure, and then join the virtual event from 7:30 to 9 p.m. You must be present at the online event to win the door prize.

“Get ready for delicious crab and a fun virtual auction with some wonderful items to bid on.” says Yolo Crisis Nursery Board President Jennifer Thayer. “The proceeds from our annual Crab Feed are an essential piece of the Nursery’s financial health and enable the Nursery to continue to serve children and families in crisis.”

The Live and Silent Auctions have a great line-up of items including one-of-a-kind art, golf outings, travel adventures, and tasty desserts. A Live Auction preview and Silent Auction will open on February 15, 2022 at 12 noon. Please go to www.yolocrisisnursery.org to learn more.

We are thrilled to announce that Clark Pacific is returning as our Premier Sponsor for the 10th Annual Yolo Crisis Nursery Crab Feed. “We are honored to be the Premier Sponsor of the Crab Feed for the second year in a row,” said Bob Clark, Co-CEO Clark Pacific. “It is wonderful to partner with the Yolo Crisis Nursery as we share a passion for serving the youth of Yolo County.”

This event historically sells out well in advance, so don’t delay and get your tickets today. Individual tickets are $65, and several levels of sponsorship are still available starting at $1,500. Sponsorships can be purchased now by emailing Becky Heard at bheard@yolocrisisnursery.org.

All Crab Feed proceeds go to the Yolo Crisis Nursery. The Nursery is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, for children and families in turmoil. Our services are free of charge, and we never turn children away.

Every child and family that the Yolo Crisis Nursery serves is unique, and each one is in crisis with little or no support system, and all are in need of aid. The Nursery keeps young, vulnerable children safe and helps their parents resolve their immediate crises. The Nursery continues to work with and follow families for one year to ensure that they successfully transition out of crisis, the children remain safe, and the family stays whole.

Please join us on Feb. 19 for crab and fun to keep families whole and help our most vulnerable in their time of need. To learn more about the Nursery or to donate, please visit www.yolocrisisnursery.org
