About 350 people chowed down on 1,500 ponds of delicious Dungeness crab at the Rotary Club of El Dorado Hills Crab Feed on Feb. 19.

Rotary volunteers and 70 Oak Ridge High School Interact Club students set up, served up and cleaned up at the annual event, which raises money for local and international projects. This year local youth outreach organization Hands 4 Hope also received some funds. Interact Club members donated their tips — more than $1,000 — to ShelterBox, a Rotary non-profit that provides shelters to disaster victims.

“It’s so wonderful to see our community come out and support the great work Rotary does all over the world as well as right here in El Dorado Hills,” said Bill Tobin, club president.

The club is still tallying the amount raised from ticket sales, a silent auction and raffle.

Those who stayed until the end were treated to a special performance by Tobin, who sang “Sweet Home Chicago” with event entertainers The Used Blues Band and fellow Rotarian Mike Russell on drums.

“It was legendary,” Tobin said.
