Lions Cioppino Dinner for Charity

Almost 300 people participated in Saturday's banquet at St. Mary's Church, with proceeds to benefit the Lions Eye Foundation, scholarships and community projects.

Every year the organizes its cioppino dinner to benefit local charities, such as the Lions Eye Foundation, scholarships and community projects. 

On Saturday evening, the club once again offered its popular banquet at 's Howley Hall, which included a feast of salads, breads, antipasto, wine and the main feature, cioppino. A raffle and silent auction was held for chances to win prizes such as art, gift baskets, jewelry, wine and other assorted goodies. 

The event pulled in around 280 people from around the community, including Los Gatos Mayor Joe Pirzynski and other town officials. Feeding that many people required more than 450 pounds of crab, 120 pounds of clams and 70 pounds of prawns.

The Lions worked hard to bring it all together and even acted as the chefs of the dinner while local high school students volunteered their time as servers and food runners.
