Yolo Crisis Nursery: Ahoy! Krustaceans for Kids returns this March

From page A3 | January 15, 2014 |

The Friends of the Yolo Crisis Nursery are excited to announce their second annual Krustaceans for Kids crab feed scheduled for Friday, March 14. Cocktails begin at 6 p.m. with dinner being served at 7 p.m. A raffle and silent auction will accompany the festivities and a live band will inspire a little dancing after the feast.

Last year’s inaugural event was completely sold out. In order to accommodate popular demand, the dinner will move to the Veterans’ Memorial Center at 203 E. 14th St. between Davis High School and the Stephens Branch Library.

Sponsorship opportunities are also available at a variety of levels. We are especially pleased to partner with Sutter Health as our premier sponsor. Individuals and businesses interested in joining this effort are invited to contact Heidy Kellison at 530-386-2647 or

The Yolo Crisis Nursery keeps the youngest and most vulnerable children — from birth to age 5 — safe during times of family crisis by providing emergency respite care, a safe environment and supervision for children day or night. Families are also supported and connected with community resources to reduce isolation, lower stress and resolve crisis or hardship.

Because the nursery is one of only a handful in the state of California, the Friends believe sustaining the nursery will lead to the development of similar crisis services in other communities. Imagine how different the world would be if every child could grow up in a safe and loving home.

Early-bird tickets are now available at just $35 each while supplies last. These must be purchased by Feb. 1 at After Feb. 1, tickets will cost $40 per person.

Volunteer opportunities are also available for a variety of tasks. Additionally, if you have a raffle prize or silent auction item to donate, we’d appreciate your contribution.

It truly takes a community to maintain such a vital, cherished service. We look forward to serving you while you, in turn, support a resource that has served Yolo County since 2002.
