Congratulations to all! We have sold all the tickets for our Annual Crab Feed. Hopefully, those of you that had wanted tickets, were able to purchase them. Since it is a fund raiser, we will be having a silent and live auction. We are still collecting donations for the auctions. Any donations would be greatly appreciated. Remember the funds we generate will be used for the club’s humanitarian projects on the East Side of San Jose. 
We are really proud of the hard work of our Rotarians, going above and beyond to retailers and restaurants in and around evergreen and east San Jose collecting donations - $100 worth of tools from a Home Depot, $50 worth tools from OSH Southside, $50 gift certificates from Mexican Lindo, a dinner from Caspian Village restaurant, some coffee and gift certificate from Starbucks, plenty of tools from OSH Alum Rock, $100 worth from SOH Silver Creek, a big beautiful "car wash" gift basket from Payless Rockery and Hardware, a $50 gift card (actually, 5-$10 cards) from Red Lobster, a fitness evaluation gift card from Sozo fitness, a $75 gift card from Target Silver Creek, 2 gift cards for 2 cakes from Nothing Bundt Cakes on Aborn, Working on getting more from New Seasons, Office Depot, and Sizzler and making plenty more gift baskets with support from all the club members. Some of us are bringing in wine bottles, kitchen ware, cutlery, spa - bath and body, accessories, sports memerobilia etc....please bring in anything that we can put together in baskets and auction off, and of course if any of you have the time visit your neighborhood retail and restaurants to request gift certificates. Most of them are willing and happy to do so.
Now we need to get together and Wrap Gift Baskets.

We request Nick's help to transport the items on Feb 4th, Joy Engstrom's help and everybody else for baskets, Sara's help for any wrapping paper, string, hay, or any kind of packing material in the shed, or as a matter of fact if any of you have some at home that you would like to donate.
Please let us know if you can come, and if you can't come and have gift items, pls bring them to the meeting on Thursday Jan 26th, we can wrap them for you.
A reminder to all members to bring dessert to Auction off at the Crab Feed. Dessert Auction is a great way for the Club to generate income from the Crab Feed.  Members are encouraged to bring a dessert to the auction, home made or from your favorite bakery!
