35th Annual Crab Shack

Saint Mary’s is excited to announce our 35th Annual Crab Shack Dinner! Since 1988, our staff/volunteers have been serving a quality, crab-cracking, mouth-watering meal being served here on campus to our SM community. This event always proves to be one of our most anticipated fundraisers of the year. Not to disappoint anyone the last two years we offered a very scaled down event in the form of a drive thru dinner. This year we can’t wait to provide another amazing traditional experience. This year, our Crab Shack will include:

  • Tickets for the event will be $80 per person - This will include the usual salad and pasta provided by Angelina’s, Genova bread, and the star of the show, all-you-can-eat crab. A bottle of red and/or white wine will be on each table, and dessert will be provided by Nothing Bundt Cakes in Lincoln Center.
  • In-person dining is available ONLY, there will be no drive-thru or delivery option
  • All auction items will be online
  • This year we will be bringing oysters on the half shell! They will served between 6 PM and 7 PM while supplies last!
  • No host bar at the event
