Shrimporee marks 40th anniversary
A crowd of more than 3,000 joined Space Center Rotary members in celebrating the 40th anniversary of their Shrimporee and Auction in Clear Lake Park’s Landolt Pavilion.
Chaired by President-elect Scott Rainey, the afternoon festivities featured both live and silent auctions, mounds of shrimp and barbecue with entertainment for kids and music by the San Jacinto College Band. A highlight of the event came with the announcement of the winner of the raffle – a $5,000 shopping spree donated by Lewis Diamonds and Timepieces in Webster.
This year’s beneficiaries are the EarlyAct FirstKnight program at Whitcomb Elementary in Clear Lake and Team River Runner Veteran’s Outdoor Project.
