Let’s get cracking! 2020


Florence Food Share Crab Crack

Jan. 15, 2020 — The ninth annual Crab Crack fundraiser for Florence Food Share will happen on Saturday, Feb. 1, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Florence Events Center, 715 Quince St. Tickets are now on sale. Past Crab Cracks have all sold out, so get crackin’ and get your tickets.

Attendees will enjoy Oregon coast crab along with pasta, coleslaw, garlic bread, sodas, coffee and dessert. A no-host bar will be available. There will also be a silent auction during the event that will include a beautiful selection of items.

Ticket price is $45 per person, and advance purchase is required. Only 400 tickets will be sold, so it is suggested that people get their tickets early. There will be no ticket sales at the door.

This year, 50 “To Go” boxes, which include one whole crab, pasta, coleslaw, garlic bread and dessert, will be pre-sold. These will be available for pick up on Feb. 1 from 2 to 3 p.m. and cost $25 each.

All proceeds will benefit the hunger relief efforts of Florence Food Share, an emergency and supplemental food pantry serving individuals and households in West Lane County.
