WATCH: Fun times at the WECEF Crab Feed Fundraiser and installation of the WECA 2023 Boards of Directors and Trustees:
The 2023 Claws for a Cause Crab Feed and Fundraiser -- held on Friday, March 10 at WECA's California headquarters in Rancho Cordova -- was crab-solutely amazing!
The annual crab feed, which supports education and careers in the electrical and low voltage trades, had a three-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, it was wonderful to be able to safely host it once again and help WECEF create more opportunities for student scholarships, materials, and improvements to WECA labs, classrooms, and the electrical industry with the help of our member contractors and sponsors.
"Everyone enjoyed the event," says Terry Seabury, WECA's Executive Director and CEO. "It was fun to have our instructors act as the evening's waiters, and to have them get to meet or get re-acquainted with our Board and Trustee members."
Attendees ate delicious Dungeness crab entrees and sides and enjoyed festive libations courtesy of Rudy's Hideaway, a well-known local seafood and steak restaurant, mingled with industry peers, and witnessed the installation of the 2023 WECA Board of Directors, Apprenticeship Training Trust Board of Trustees, and Health and Welfare and Pension Board of Trustees.
"We had about 100 attendees," says Leanne Sipes, WECA's Senior Accountant. "The contractors and industry partners and supporters are always great with their sponsorships and participation in the raffle and silent auction. We were happy to have Hunt Electric, our founding Utah member contractor, come out and sponsor for the first time, too."

Thank you, everyone, for making the 2023 Claws for a Cause Crab Feed and Fundraiser a successful evening! The continuing participation, enthusiasm and generosity of our member contractors and sponsors is amazing to behold -- without them, WECEF's mission would not be possible. Here's to a wonderful rest of the school year and coming school year, and we look forward to shella-brating with everyone again next year!
