Claws for a Cause 2012 fund-raiser

“Making a difference never tasted so good!”

For more than three decades, the Claws for a Cause fund-raiser has given many Coloradans an excuse to celebrate with their families, friends and neighbors while supporting a great cause. Festivities range from small intimate dinners to large parties held in backyards or parks with hundreds of people. How else can residents in our landlocked state hold a New England style “Lobster Bake” in the middle of June?

Live 1.25-pound lobsters from the James Hook and Co. in Boston or frozen lobster tails, as well as filet mignon steaks and 1/3-pound burgers from Anderson Boneless Beef, can be ordered now through June 11. Order pickup will be on Saturday, June 16, between 1 and 2 p.m. at St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church, 225 S. Pagosa Blvd. All proceeds from this event support those affected by the sudden and unexpected death of an infant or toddler.

To order fresh, succulent live lobsters and Anderson boneless beef, please visit the Claws for a Cause website at
