Today it is not a lunch but rather a dinner time Crab Feed to benefit the Asian Community Center. It will be held in Elk Grove, CA. But first Gobo will drive us to Sacramento to his brother-in-law Walton's home. It is just me, Gobo and Sandra for today's Lunch Bunch.

The building where the Crab Feed was held could only accommodate 800 and was sold out far in advance.

This is the Sacramento Asian Sports Foundation building in Elk Grove, CA just a mile east of the Apple Factory.

It is early but the place is starting to fill up.

The Mayor of Sacramento and former Phoenix Suns guard, Kevin Johnson puts in an appearance.

Rita and Ted S. are Gobo's friends. Sandra and Rita were sorority sisters at UOP.

An appetizer is some braised spareribs, Chinese style

Look at this guy's stack of shells

He even needed to change his bib

There were a couple of different 50/50 raffles and the lady on the far right is Linda's friend who won $1,000 and donated it back to the ACC.

There were a few couples that I knew at the Event, but did not know that they were going to be there.

I saw Kent and Patty Y. from Stockton, but did not have my camera at the time.

And this is Joanne N. and her husband, Ron to her right in glasses. She is the daughter of my dad's long time golfing buddy. We also ran into her at Oto's Market on one of the Lunch Bunch's trips to the Market Club.
This is Dan A. and his wife. Dan is a member of our NorCal Triumph Motorcycle Club.

It was a late night for the Lunch Bunch. But for a worthy cause.
