Crab Feed funds Mission reconstruction
Submitted By Joshua Jeremiah
Pull up a chair and strap on a bib for the 11th annual Committee for the Restoration of Mission San Jose (CRMSJ) Crab Feed fundraiser! Start off your night with a selection of wines from our no-host bar, followed by garlic bread, salad, pasta, and of course, fresh Pacific Coast crab.
Participate in our exciting 50/50 raffle, then satisfy your sweet tooth with our signature CRMSJ wafer and ice cream dessert. Proceeds from ticket sales and the raffle will go toward preserving and restoring FremontÕs beloved Mission, one of the Tri-CityÕs best known and iconic historical landmarks.
Founded June 11, 1797 the Mission stood proudly until 1868, when and an earthquake destroyed the church and part of the padresÕ living quarters. In 1973, a group of concerned citizens launched the CRMSJ, a non-profit, non-sectarian organization dedicated to researching, financing, and restoring our beautiful Old Mission San Jose.
Major rebuilding and restoration efforts began in 1982 with the reconstruction of the adobe church, which was completed in 1985. A partnership with the Diocese of Oakland allowed for the completion of seismic retrofitting. Ongoing plans include the reconstruction of missing rooms connecting the Mission church to the adjacent museum.
For tickets to the event, please call or send an email to the Committee and request a reservation form. Payments and forms will also be accepted at the door, but advance purchase is preferred. Please, no outside beverages, doggie bags, or carry outs.
