NORTH SHORE – Rotarians are busy preparing for their annual fundraiser, the 40th Annual Catfish Fry & Crawfish Boil, that will be held at the Rotary Pavilion next to the Courthouse Annex at 14350 Wallisville Road, Saturday May 16th.
This annual event brings out almost a thousand people each year, eager to try the fresh catfish and crawfish seafood meal and try to win a new car in the raffle.
This year’s prize is either a new Toyota Camry or a Toyota Tundra pick-up, courtesy of Community Toyota in Baytown. There are a total of 20 prizes in the drawing, which costs $100 to enter, and includes 2 meals with your raffle ticket. Also available are meal tickets for a $10 donation for one serving. Food will be served from 11 am to 3 pm, but come early for there is a high demand.
There will also be a entertainment, and a live auction and a silent auction, and each year about 100 unique items are up for bid. There is a lot of interest in this, due to the special types of prizes.
North Shore Rotary uses the proceeds from the event to fund community projects all year long, including youth projects, scholarships, and international projects.
Major Sponsor this year is the Holiday Inn East. Come and have a good time, plenty of free parking.
