Port City's very own finger-lickin', butter-dippin', shell-crackin' seafood feast prepared Chef Paul Ratto style at the Waterloo Gun and Bocce Club
It's difficult to pass up the opportunity to partner with Chef Paul Ratto who will execute our very own vision of the Port City Lobster & Shrimp Feed. We are excited to change our venue and caterer this year and have you as our guests!
Our organization was born here in the Central Valley and we continue to grow here. We humbly serve our community members day in and day out by providing ALL individuals the opportunity to reap the benefits of fitness, health, and recreation, no matter their challenges on the amazing waters of the Delta that grace our community.
It is part of our DNA to support our community whenever we can.
We can't wait to share this fabulous feast with you this year!
In the ticket section of this page you will see 2 ticket options:
1. Lobster and shrimp
There is an option to purchase a Tomahawk steak, in addition!
Meal options are listed on the ticket section of this page.
All of the proceeds from this event support three of Delta Sculling Center's programs:
1. Girls Row Stockton, DSC's junior girls' sculling team:
2019 marks the second year of GRS. Your help will support this program, enabling our youth, many of whom come from under-resourced neighborhoods, to find a sport that will likely transform their lives and maybe even help them row their way into higher education. Proceeds provide tuition for girls with less means, transportation to and from the boathouse for practices, transportation to regattas, regatta entry fees, daily food at the boathouse for well-fueled practices, uniforms and travel expenses for regattas beyond our local boundaries, etc.
The DSC OarBusters program is one of two adaptive sports programs located in the Central Valley. Your donations will enable DSC to connect with more individuals in need and provide them with the service of transportation to and from practice, staffing needs, and adaptive equipment so they can experience the benefits of movement on the water.
3. Freedom Rows - Delta Heroes:
We are allied with the VA Palo Alto Health Care System to include sculling in individual rehabilitation plans for injured veterans including those with physical challenges and others who are "able-bodied" but struggle with emotional, psychological and cognitive difficulties resulting from their military service. Through your support we are able to reach more veterans and provide them with our services, most importantly community support and the meditative experience of sculling on the Delta waterways.
Here's how the evening will go:
4:30pm - Cocktails, Raffle, & Silent Auction
6pm - Dinner & Live Auction
