The 13th Annual Milpitas Unified School District (MUSD) Crab Feed held on Friday, February 10 was a grand success! Over 300 attendees and volunteers ignited the room with their energy and sparkling laughter.
Music performed by Milpitas youth from the South Bay Music School, led by Director Joe Santoro, enhanced the festive chatter. Coach Kelly King and his Milpitas High School football team served as volunteers to ensure that crab was plentiful at every table, while the MHS Key Clubbers prepped the dining hall. MUSD Student Nutrition Director Victor Frausto and his team prepared a delectable salad and pasta dish to accompany the crab.
The grand event was emceed by MHS PE teacher Chuy Zamudio and community member Joseph Weinstein. Several parent volunteers and friends of Kiwanis assisted with donations, sales, and ticketing. The Milpitas Kiwanis, a team of dedicated service leaders led by Crab Feed chairs Dennis Grilli and Mike Mendizabal, were the engine behind this fabulous event.
The magic of the night was that our neighbors, city leaders, school staff and Board came together to raise nearly $30,000 for scholarships and new school clothes to benefit our students in need of financial assistance.
Board President Dan Bobay, the Board, and I are grateful to all who made this a special night; together We serve our MUSD community!
