Washington Governor Jay Inslee will join Washington Democrats at the 89th Annual Crab Feed in Pacific County on Saturday.
Believed to be the oldest continuous fundraiser in the state, the crab feed will begin with a social hour at 5 p.m. at the Willapa Harbor Chamber Building, 916 W. 1st St. in South Bend
Among other guests scheduled to attend are Congressman Derek Kilmer, State Auditor Troy Kelley, state Sen. Brian Hatfield, D-Raymond; and State Reps. Brian Blake, D-Aberdeen; and Dean Takko, D-Longview.
According to County Democratic Chair Karen Spackman, “The crab will likely come fresh off the docks in Ilwaco!”
Besides the dinner, there will also be raffles, a silent auction and a live auction hosted by former Democratic state Senator Craig Pridemore of Vancouver, who also served as the auctioneer during last year’s event.
The auction includes stays at local inns, a hand-forged coat rack and even a ride in the family canoe from the leader of the Chinook Nation.
Dinner starts at 6 p.m. and the cost is $30, payable in advance at www.pacificcountydemocrats.com or at the door.
