Maryland Gamma (Washington College) Raises $10,000 for ALS Research At Annual Crab Feast


The Maryland Gamma Chapter recently celebrated its 25 year anniversary at Washington College. Crab Feast is the chapter’s biggest philanthropy event of the year and was started when Maryland Gamma was still a colony. This year the chapter partnered with The Robert Packard Center for ALS Research at Johns Hopkins, whose goal is to find a cure for the disease. Thanks to the support of the brothers, the community, and those at The Packard Center, this year’s 27th annual Crab Feast was the most successful in the chapter’s history.

A ticket to Crab Feast included all-you-can-eat hot dogs, hamburgers, and Maryland Crab — all eaten on the beautiful Chester River waterfront. This year the chapter sold around 500 tickets to students, faculty, and community members, a number that has continued to grow each year.

All costs considered, the Maryland Gamma Chapter will be presenting The Packard Center with a check for $10,000. This money will allow for the funding of ALS research projects all around the world, and it will hopefully help to make strides toward understanding and overcoming this deadly disease.
