Each year the Crab Feed raises funds for a specific project to enhance visitor experience at the Los Altos History Museum through “Raise the Paddle.”  This year’s dedicated fundraising is for reimagining the lighting for the patio between the Museum and the J. Gilbert Smith House. Currently the patio is a very popular venue for evening weddings and other special events. The new lighting design makes the patio a more welcoming space for these and additional evening community events. Targeted fundraising goal is $25,000.

Tickets may be purchased online on January 10, 2017. Reservations cannot be taken in advance of this date.https://losaltoshistory.org/events/annual-crab-feed-auction-2/
