Multi-Service Center cancels annual Crab Feed and Auction due to current health crisis

The event was scheduled for June 6; Community fundraising options include upcoming online auction, raffle tickets for purchase.

Due to the evolving and unknown health and economic impacts of the current health crisis, the Multi-Service Center has decided to cancel the 2020 Crab Feed & Auction scheduled for June 6.

“We know this event is something that many of you look forward to each year and this was not an easy decision, but one we felt was prudent and necessary at this time,” the Multi-Service Center announced in a newsletter.

The organization is still looking at ways to maintain some community spirit around the event, which raises critical funds to help support MSC’s work in the community.

Here are a few ways to get involved:

Online Auction – The MSC has already received fabulous items and will host an online auction. Please be on the lookout for more details to come.

Alaska Airlines Ticket Raffle – Raffle tickets are currently being sold at $10 per ticket for a chance to win two round-trip coach tickets anywhere Alaska Airlines flies. Valid on Alaska Airlines only, no code share partners, no black out dates, and vouchers need to be ticketed by June 6, 2021.

Raffle tickets are available at HomeStreet Bank in Federal Way (you can purchase them in the drive-thru while the lobby is closed) or by emailing with your name and phone number so we can contact you. Look for information about a raffle for two first-class tickets coming soon!

Save the Date for 2021 – The MSC is already planning for next year’s event, so be sure to mark your calendars for June 5, 2021.
