The San Leandro Rotary Club has been a long time supporter of our local high school students granting college scholarships and scholarships to RYLA Leadership Camp.  The “Lobsters for Literacy” Lobster Feed sustains these scholarships as well as funds the now 6th annual distribution of dictionaries to all 3rd grade students in the San Leandro School District.

This year, the Lobsters for Literacy event will be held on Friday, October 7, 2011 at the Boys & Girls Club (401 Marina Blvd).  Tickets are running out!  So we ask that anyone in San Leandro and the surrounding area who is interested in attending and supporting the local educational system to order tickets before it is too late.

Tickets are $75 each for Maine Lobsters or alternatively, Prime Rib.  Dinner includes salad, pasta & garlic bread catered by Miraglia Catering, one of the best catering venues in the Bay Area, and based right here in San Leandro.  There will also be a No-Host Bar for wine, beer, cocktails & soft drinks.

For some fun, attendees will get a chance to win raffle prizes. Raffle tickets will be sold at the venue.  Grand prizes will include an iPad and a large-screen television.  There will be many more fun items for raffle as well.
