Guests Can Enjoy Joeâ€™s Without the Wait Before Stone Crab Season Ends!
Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade will hold a last call before stone crab season ends! At the organizationâ€™s 2nd Annual â€œClaws for Kidsâ€ fundraising brunch, guests can enjoy delicious stone crabs and other signature Joeâ€™s cuisine without the wait. All event proceeds will benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dadeâ€™s state-of-the-art South Beach location. Last yearâ€™s event raised $32,500 net for the cause.
Joeâ€™s will open up its restaurant for brunch on May 5 only for supporters of Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dadeâ€™s â€œClaws for Kids.â€ Menu items will include stone crabs, cole slaw, hash brown potatoes, creamed spinach and Key Lime pie. For those who donâ€™t eat stone crabs, main course options will be available. Entertainment will be provided by Frank Sinatra impersonator Jeff Grainer of Sinatra Sounds Entertainment. Showcasing/selling their pieces on site will be Santayana Jewelers and Gaby Malcer Custom Jewelry.
â€œLast yearâ€™s â€˜Claws for Kidsâ€™ brunch was a great success, and weâ€™re happy to continue this annual event,â€ said Judy Kramer, Claws for Kids committee chair. â€œThe brunch presents a great opportunity to enjoy Joeâ€™s delicious cuisine without the wait while raising funds for the new South Beach Club.â€
â€œClaws for Kidsâ€ committee members include Judy Kramer, Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade former Board President Olga Guilarte, Lana DeSimone, Susan Geiger, Irene Korge, Raul Marmol, Connie & Fred Rebozo, Jeff Samas, Rae Stein, Eris Thomas, and Dr. Mark Walker.
After having served the children of Miami Beach for 27 years, the prior 2,500-sq.-ft. South Beach Club on the existing site was demolished in September 2011 to make way for construction of the new facility, which will open early summer 2013 during a celebratory ribbon-cutting party. The new South Beach Club will feature a teen center, state-of-the-art computer lab, teaching kitchen for children, homework rooms, games rooms and a creative arts room, and will serve approximately 400 children from the local area.
