Stella Maris Crab Feast and Auction, October 23

July 6, 2016

announcing MTGet your mallets ready! The 32nd annual Stella Maris Crab Feast and Auction, presented by M&T Bank, is set for Sunday, October 23rd, from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m. at the Maryland State Fair Grounds in Timonium. (Please note that the date is later in the month this year and is a change from the date previously advertised.) Last year was another tremendous sold-out success with more than 1,200 guests attending. This popular event has raised nearly $2 million in its 32 year history to benefit the Monsignor Lyness Fund and Hospice Services at Stella Maris.  Thanks to everyone who supports the Crab Feast we are able to help hospice patients and their families receive the assistance and services they need at a critical time, like “Mrs. A.”

Mrs. A was referred to Stella Maris from a local Cancer Institute. She did not have insurance and was unable to pay for her care. Her husband was employed but earned just enough money to pay for housing and food for their family. The entire family was absolutely devastated by Mrs. S’ prognosis. The Cancer Institute asked Stella Maris if they would get involved. Both facilities worked together and graciously agreed to cover all of the costs of her care. Her family and the staff at the Cancer Institute were most appreciative of the very important role Stella Maris played in the final three months of her life.

Purchasing a ticket is not the only way you can help.  We are accepting donations for the silent and live auctions, restaurant gift cards for the “Sure Thing” wine gift bags, and candy bars for the Cash or Candy game. Personal and Corporate sponsorships are also available.

We promise a day to remember – with all you can eat steamed crabs, pit beef, pit turkey and a full buffet, beer and soda, along with games, raffles, music, and great auction items, and of course, the spirit of Mercy. A big-screen TV will provide minute-by-minute access to the Baltimore Ravens vs. New York Jets game!
