8th Annual Rotary Crawfish Boil Set For April 29th at Moody Gardens
Again this year to raise monies that will directly benefit the Galveston community’s many vital humanitarian and educational projects and programs, the Club will host its 8th Annual Rotary Club of Galveston Crawfish Boil on Sunday, April 29th.
Presented by the Dr. Leon Bromberg Charitable Trust Fund, this fun, family event will take place at Moody Gardens, 12 noon-4pm, under the Big White Tent behind the Discovery Pyramid.
You can look forward to a delightful afternoon of good food, live Zydeco music and the fellowship of family and friends.
The Lighthouse Charity Cooking Team will be back – under the direction of Scott Gordon and their superb crew – preparing a superb plate of Cajun-spicy crawfish, potatoes, onions, and fresh corn on the cob.
Also again this year, attendees can opt for specially-seasoned hot, boiled shrimp, if preferred. Other popular options to round the menu include Lighthouse Dogs and barbeque beef-stuffed potato.
Beverages will include ice-cold beer, soft drinks, and bottled water.
For the past seven years, attendees have enjoyed live Zydeco music and rest assured this tradition will continue as the very popular Mustang and his Two-Steppin’ Zydeco Band will return by popular demand and perform throughout the afternoon. Another crowd favorite at this fun family event is the Zydeco Dance Contest and the competition will culminate with the crowning of the festival’s Zydeco Dance King or Dance Queen. In addition to being “crowned,” valuable prizes will be awarded to the winning King or Queen, as well as to winners in each category.
The “Children’s Crawfish Eating Contest,” great raffles, the popular “Mud Bug Bounce” (aka Moon Walk), and more will round out the afternoon’s activities for families and their children.
“All proceeds generated from this fundraising event (as well as monies raised from the Club’s upcoming 42nd annual Rotary Chili Supper held in November), will be distributed through the Rotary Club of Galveston’s Galveston Rotary Foundation, Inc. to in turn be distributed to Galveston organizations dedicated to improving our local community’s health, education and welfare,” noted Crawfish Boil Chair, Scott Livanec.
Crawfish plate tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Advance crawfish or shrimp plate tickets will be available at the Galveston Chamber of Commerce office, 2228 Mechanic St., Ste. #101, by calling the Chamber office at (409)763-5326, or purchasing online at galvestonchamber.com.
