Soroptimist International of Auburn hosts its Cupid’s Crab and Brew Fest at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9 at the Auburn Community & Event Center, 910 Ninth St. SE.

For more than 20 years, the club has staged the event to raise funds and to entertain.

The evening includes all-you-can-eat Dungeness crab, local brews, a dessert dash, gift-card board, games of chance and prizes. Attendees can enter to win one of several getaway or experience packages.

A giving tree will support Shelter for Sisters that, in partnership with the Auburn Food Bank, helps fund initial relocation costs for victims of domestic violence. Another activity, Raise the Paddle, will support the club’s Dream programs, including the college-level Live Your Dream award and Dream It, Be It, a program to empower high school students to create a brighter future.

Tickets are $75. It’s a casual dress affair.

Soroptimists, a global volunteer organization, help improve the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment. The Auburn club, chartered in 1947, has supported a variety of important projects and initiatives in its 70-plus years of supporting the community.
