Charitable contributions spice Ravens Roost's annual crab derby

After eight heats and a total of 80 contestants, Raven Roost 68's annual Crab Derby finally had its winner.

The winning crab was "jockeyed" by Peggy Stankiewicz, the wife of the organization's president, Wayne.

The Aug. 20 event, held at Johnson's Highland Inn, raised $700 for the local roost's charity fund, said Wayne Stankiewicz.

During the event, which the roost has hosted for approximately seven years, the group also collected school supplies to donate to Baltimore Highlands Elementary School.

At the end of the night, the roost presented a $1,000 check to a disabled Baltimore Highlands resident to use to buy a motor scooter.
