Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade to Host 11th Annual “Claws for Kids” Fundraiser
The event will be held at Joe’s Stone Crab on May 3
To honor the memory of longtime board member Judy Kramer while raising funds for its educational and after-school programs, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade is hosting its 11th Annual “Claws for Kids” fundraiser. The in-person event will begin with a cocktail reception at 11 a.m., then a brunch on May 3 at Joe’s Stone Crab in Miami Beach. Guests will enjoy delicious stone crabs and other signature menu items without waiting.
Kramer helped create the event and chaired it from its inception until her passing in February 2021. Olga Guilarte and Lisa Mendelson are co-chairing this year’s fundraiser. Proceeds will benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s many positive programs, including after-school programs, homework assistance, computer training, social skills, dance, arts & crafts, professional mentoring, and summer and athletic programs.
“It’s an honor to hold the 11th Annual’ Claws for Kids’ in memory of Judy Kramer, who helped create this event and chaired it since its inception,” Alex Rodriguez-Roig says, president of Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade. “We look forward to seeing everyone back in person and enjoying Joe’s famous stone crabs while raising funds to benefit the Club’s many positive programs.”
Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade supporters who cannot attend the event can still enjoy Joe’s famous stone crabs at home by purchasing sponsorship gift cards on the Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s website to benefit “Claws for Kids.” Sponsorship opportunities are available and range from $500 to $30,000, and individual tickets are available to purchase for $325.
