Tonight there are three of us, Gobo, Sandra and me, headed to a Fund Raiser at the local St Mark's United Methodist Church in Stockton which has a largely Chinese-American congregation.

It is already quite crowded inside

Gordon is a part-time entertainer who now resides in Fresno but his family has strong ties to the church. His sister is one of the people running the event and his mother is here helping out also.
Gordon did not even eat he provided background music for the entire dinner.

Also a big bowl of steamed rice to eat along with the crab.

Gobo won the table prize a bag of Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares which we would have for our dessert.

Oranges and fortune cookies were the dessert for the Crab Feed.

It is still only about 7:30 PM as the crowd leaves, but it is really dark outside.
