The Rotary Club of Baytown will be hosting its Third Annual Shrimp and Catfish Festival on Saturday, April 21 at Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown.
The Shrimp and Catfish Festival is the primary fundraiser for the Rotary Club of Baytown. With over 100 members, the Rotary Club is committed to its motto: Service Above Self. The money raised at the Shrimp and Catfish Festival is used to support other worthy service organizations locally, such as the GCCISD Education Foundation and Bay Area Homeless Services, as well as select international projects. For example, a contingent of Baytown Rotarians recently went to Guatemala to assist in engineering and digging a water well that will service over 2000 people that, prior to having a well, had to walk up to 5 miles just to access drinking water.
The Shrimp and Catfish Festival will begin at 11:00am and go to 3:00pm, with a live auction beginning at 12:30pm. Individual meal tickets are $10.00, and raffle tickets are $100. Only 600 raffle tickets are being sold, and prizes range from $100 gift cards to laptop computers to the Grand Prize, a 2012 Toyota Tundra. There will also be a silent auction and lots of family activities, such as face painting and a bounce house for the kids.
