JJ Seafood Crawl 2023 has officially ended. Thank you for your full support!

We want to give you a big thank you for joining us on our recent Seafood Crawl. Your ticket purchase didn't just get you some crab cakes, it also made a meaningful impact on the donations we were able to raise for Paul's Place and The Franciscan Center.

We hope you had a blast trying out all the different crab cake dishes at various restaurants throughout National Seafood Month. JJ McDonnell was excited to see the community come together to support these important culinary programs that teach life skills and promote workforce development. You played a huge role in making it happen, and we can't thank you enough!
