On October 13, Rosary Academy will host one of their biggest fundraisers of the year: Cracked Crab. This event is widely known throughout the school community, yet some people- particularly students -have no idea what it is.

To begin the evening, there are cocktails (not for students, of course) and a silent auction at 5:00 pm. Doors to a delicious Cracked Crab dinner open at 6:30 pm.

Dinner consists of crab, shrimp, clam chowder, bratwurst, potatoes, and more! There will be live music from the band The Reflexx, and plenty of time for dancing.

Rosary English teacher Ms. Young will be attending the event this year for the first time. She is very excited and says she is going because “as a teacher, it’s really nice to see parents in a non-parent setting. It’s a really great way to support Rosary and take an active part in the community.”

It’s a really great event and a lot of families from the community attend. Ms. Young says, “I really hope the pope attends. I really want to sit with him and all of the cool teachers, mainly Ms. Barclay.

Ms. La Bonte ’09, Advancement and Alumnae Coordinator, gives some insight on the event. She says, “The Cracked Crab is a really fun event and a great community builder. Parents get to come with their friends and eat dinner together at these big, long family-style tables; they can bet on silent auction items and dance to a really cool 80’s band.”

This is an event that Rosary has been hosting for the last 39 years. Ms. La Bonte says the reason it continues to be an annual fundraiser is because “it is such a fun event and people enjoy going to it. There are many families who come back to it even after their children graduate. It is not a boring dinner, it has great food and great entertainment.”

Buy your tickets soon because early bird pricing is $60 per ticket until October 5. Starting October 6, tickets will rise to $80 a piece. Tickets will be sold at the door, but be mindful that there is a limited supply and they are selling out quickly.
