2nd Annual “Claws for Kids” Brunch at Joe's Stone CrabSunday, May 5, 11:30am - Joe’s Stone Crab, 11 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach

Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade hosted 2nd Annual “Claws for Kids” fundraising brunch at Joe’s Stone Crab in Miami Beach, as the last call before stone crab season ends. Guests enjoyed delicious stone crabs, cole slaw, hash brown potatoes, creamed spinach and Key Lime Pie. For those who don’t eat stone crabs, main course options were also available. Committee members include Judy Kramer, Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade former Board President Olga Guilarte, Lana DeSimone, Irene Korge, Susan Geiger, Eris Thomas, Connie & Fred Rebozo, Rae Stein, Raul Marmol, Andres Guilarte and Mark Walker. All event proceeds to benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s state-of-the-art South Beach location.

After having served the children of Miami Beach for 27 years, the prior 2,500-sq.-ft. South Beach Club on the existing site was demolished in September 2011 to make way for construction of the new facility, which will open early summer 2013 during a celebratory ribbon-cutting party. The new South Beach Club will feature a teen center, state-of-the-art computer lab, teaching kitchen for children, homework rooms, games rooms and a creative arts room, and will serve approximately 400 children from the local area.
