  • 5:30 PM - 10:00 PM
  • IDESST Sausalito Portuguese Cultural Center

Join us for our annual, traditional Portuguese Cold Crab Dinner Fundraiser & Dessert Auction on Saturday, February 3rd. Under the direction of wine country, renown Chef Manuel Azevedo, we do it the "old-fashioned way," including cooking and cracking fresh crab at the Center the morning of the event.

This event has sold out early every year, so so buy your tickets Now!  

Proceeds from the important fundraiser go directly toward funding our annual Festa do Espírito Santo in the spring, as a Sausalito tradition now, going on 130 years!

Doors and Bar open at 5:30PM, dinner served at 7PM

$500/table — buy a table for friends and family (seats 8). Tables available now!

Seating preference is given by purchase date. The main ballroom is already SOLD OUT, but  tables still available in the dining room.

$65/person; $40/kids (12 and under).
Individual tickets sold after 12/15/17, if available.

*Prices may go up after the new year, as the demand and
cost of fresh live crab go up.
** Absolutely NO Doggy Bags. Thank you for understanding.

Appetizers, Portuguese Green Salad with Roasted Sweet Peppers, Garlic Buttered Pasta with Sao Jorge Cheese, Garlic Bread, and our delicious Cold Cracked Portuguese Crab.

No-Host Bar
We have a great selection of wines, cocktails, and non-alcoholic drinks. Since this is a fundraising event to support our Annual Holy Ghost Festa, we discourage bringing your own wine. If you choose to bring wine, we request a donation as "corkage."

Dessert Auction
We welcome cake or desserts donations to be auctioned during dinner (some gluten-free baked goods welcome). It's a fun way to show off your baking talent and assures our guests a delicious dessert — all while supporting a good cause. 

Please include a description of the dessert and the name of the baker for our auctioneer.
