MOSES LAKE — Tickets are on sale for a fundraising dinner for the athletic program and gym under construction at Moses Lake Christian Academy. The school’s annual crab feed is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Saturday at the Commercial Building at the Grant County Fairgrounds.

The money raised helps pay for the school’s interscholastic sports program, said MLCA director Stephanie Voigt. Some of the proceeds will go to the fundraising drive to build a new gym on the MLCA campus.

Since the crab feed benefits the school’s athletic programs, the athletes provide the labor, setting up the venue, serving the beverages during dinner and tearing down afterwards. Christian academy boys and girls teams competed in the NCW B basketball leagues, and “we’ve just started a track program,” Voigt said. Baseball and soccer are offered when funds and players permit. Covenant Christian School is combining with MLCA to field sports teams.

The gym’s exterior shell has been purchased and the project is in the final stages of the permitting process, Voigt said. Academy officials plan to break ground sometime this spring, and are soliciting project bids. “It’s exciting,” Voigt said.

School officials have raised $500,000 for the project; total project cost is $1.2 million. “We will build as the donations come in,” she said.

The menu includes all-you-can-eat crab and prime rib, Voigt said. The crab is “harvested, cleaned, cooked and brought over here within 48 hours.” Michael’s on the Lake is catering the prime rib.

A raffle and silent auction also are part of the dinner, Voigt said. Raffle prizes include a barbecue and a television. Most of the auction prizes are related to sports or athletics.

Tickets are $100 per person, $700 for a table of eight. Voigt said there are a few tickets left, but only a few. They can be purchased at the MLCA business office, 1475 NE Nelson Rd. in Moses Lake.
