Crabbing for good!
On November 30th, 2018, the California Moving and Storage Association Northern Region Chapter held its "Annual Crab Feed Fundraiser". This time, the event was held at beautiful Colma Recreation Community Center, in Colma, California.In attendance was our Association president Steve Weitekamp, our current chairman Alan Freese and local Town of Colma councilwoman Helen Fisicaro. Local San Mateo península youth were volunteers and assisted in serving food at the dinner.
Special thanks to our sponsor J & S Paper! Thanks Ken Jordan, Dustin Ulmer, Kenny Ulmer and Ricky Greene for always showing your support and contributing to this event!
We want to say special thanks to our volunteers who served beverages at the event, Rosario Gomez and Riza Thomas Solis.
The tradition of giving out crab hats for first paid ticket and first rsvp continued. This year John Chipman of Chipman Relocation was the first person to pay for their annual crab feed ticket. The first person to RSVP for the event was Mark Hildreth of New Haven Moving Equipment.
We presented Steve Weitekamp with the CMSA Pinata, artwork by local South San Francisco artist Miguel De La Rosa. You can find him in Instagram at @miguelchalksigns for 3D pinatas and other artwork.
The attendees enjoyed a dinner of salad, pasta, and wonderful crab from All Shores Seafood http://www.wehaveseafood.com/ , a local San Mateo peninsula seafood distributor.
The big prizes of the night were provided by our amazing and supportive fellow members Dennis Jenkins and Emily Thurston, owners of http://lulushauling.com/ and https://luluscyclery.com/ who brought three bikes for our raffle. Other awesome and sought after prizes were tickets to a hockey game with the San Jose Sharks provided by Pete Pfeilsticker of https://www.acerelocation.com/ and a beautiful, useful and trendy https://instantpot.com/ pressure cooker, provided by Mark Macy of http://macymovers.com/
The biggest prizes were presented by our own King Crab!
Thank you to all the attendees who brought in door prizes or purchased raffle tickets. The proceeds of this event benefit the CMSA Scholarship fund and other charities. As always, preparation, set up, hosting and clean up would not have been possible without the hard work of chapter co-president Olga Garcia.
