Crab Races for Charity

Crab races continue on Thursday nights at Tween Waters Inn on Captiva. They have been going on for years and have been successful in raising lots of money for the United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades counties. They have averaged more than $10,000 a year over the past ten years. A nice way to help out and have some fun at the same time. The way it works is you pick your crab for $2 to $5 and name it. Then all the crabs race to the finish line and the winning crab wins the pot. The rules call for a 50/50 split between the winner and United Way but most winners just turn over their full share to United Way. Give it a try. It’s a fun evening.
