    Join us for our annual, traditional Portuguese Cold Crab Dinner Fundraiser & Dessert Auction on Saturday, February 2nd. 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.

    Tickets for Tables of 8, now on sale. Only 22 tables available in the Ballroom.  Additional tables available in the smaller dining room.  This event sells out every year, so don't miss out! 

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

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

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

    Seating preference is given by purchase date.

    Individuals
    $65/person; $40/kids (12 and under).
    Individual tickets go on sale after 12/15/18, if available. Individual seating, if still available, will be in the dining room.

    Dinner 
    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 in wine, we request a donation as "corkage."

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

    Please include a description of the dessert and the name of the baker to provide on the auction sheet.

    *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.

Queen Isabel

The Story of
Queen Isabel

In the late 13th century during a severe famine throughout Portugal, a compassionate Queen Isabel was determined to help her starving subjects. Legend has it that during her efforts she was confronted by the very harsh King Diniz while crossing the royal courtyard with crown jewels (in some versions of the story it was bread) hidden in her apron.

The King asked the Queen what she was carrying in her apron, and she responded “roses” although it was mid-winter and none were blooming. But when her apron was opened for the king’s inspection, the jewels had been miraculously converted to roses. The miracle allowed the Queen to continue to sell her jewelry to feed the starving Portuguese population.
