22nd Annual Crabfest

!!! Improtant Update Information !!!

Given Governor Newsom’s order to cancel or postpone gatherings of 250 or more in the state of California, we will not be able to hold our Crabfest event on Sunday, March 22. While this is disappointing, it is the right thing to do. The health and well-being of our guests and volunteers is our top priority.

Crabfest is the major fundraising event for the Huntington Beach Host Lions Club, and all proceeds are given to local charities and non-profit groups. Our 2019 Crabfest allowed us to provide over $20,000 to these groups. By not holding our 2020 Crabfest, we will be providing less financial support to these groups this year.

We’ve been asked if the Crabfest will be rescheduled at a later date. While this is a possibility, the uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus situation will delay us from making a decision on rescheduling.

Crabfest ticket holders have three options:

  •          Allow us to keep your payment as a donation to the

                  Huntington Beach Host Lions Club

  •          Apply your keep your payment as a credit towards our next

                  Crabfest event

  •          Receive a refund

Let us know your preference by emailing us at hblionscrabfest@gmail.com.  Do not reply to the Eventbrite email address. And please be patient, as we are volunteers and this process will take some time. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Who we are - What we do

Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization. We have 1.4 million members in more than 48,000 clubs in more than 206 countries and geographic areas.

Lions have a dynamic history. Founded in 1917, we are best known for fighting blindness, but we also volunteer for many different kinds of community projects – including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled.

So who are the Huntington Beach Lions?

We are men, women and families in a philanthropic and social organization with the intent of making our City, County, Country and World just a little bit better for those less fortunate. Our clubs motto is simple "Doing Good While Having Fun".

So how do we do this great stuff… by helping those in need by helping them raise funds at their events and donating the proceeds directly to those people and organizations we have agreed to support.

So how do we raise money?

We put on Lion Pancake Breakfasts, Burger and Hot Dog events, Dinner Cook Outs, and have our main annual fundraiser “Crabfest”; we also sell a lot of raffle tickets.

Lions Project for Canine Companions for Independence:

LPCCI is a non-profit organization formed in 1983 to educate, raise funds and to seek puppy raisers for Canine Companions for Independence.

Canine Companions for Independence (CCI) pioneered the concept of training specially-bred dogs to help people with disabilities other than blindness. Founded in 1975, CCI was the first in-depth program of its kind. Not only does CCI teach dogs the skills to bring independence to people with disabilities, they teach people with disabilities the skills needed to master an exceptional dog.
