ANTIOCH - Tickets are still available for the Warlocks Motorcycle Club’s 13th annual crab feast to benefit the Warm the Children program.
The event is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 5, at the Rock Hill Clubhouse on Knobley Road.
Traditionally the top local fund raiser for Warm the Children, the crab feast will feature food, bike games, 50/50 drawings and lots of music all afternoon and evening.
Among those scheduled to perform are Back Beat, The Band McCreedy, Diamond and Twisted.
Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the gate. Advance ticket locations include First United Bank & Trust and the Wepco Federal Credit Union, both in Keyser.
The Rock Hill Clubhouse is located at 20053 Knobley Rd., New Creek, and the gates will open at noon.
Warm the Children is an annual program co-sponsored by the Mineral Daily News Tribune and Mineral County Family Resource Network.
The program provides warm winter clothing to Mineral County children in need, with volunteer shoppers taking the families on shopping trips to pick out the clothing either at Keyser Wal-mart or Peebles.
Now in its 23rd year of operation in Mineral County, Warm the Children was able to provide winter clothing for 511 children - or 221 families - last year.
Applications to receive assistance from WTC are now available at the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) on Tornado Way at Pine Swamp Road, and the deadline to submit those applications is Aug. 31.
