Benefit crab feast


The Sunday afternoon get-together at the Forum may have been for a serious cause, to raise more than $3,500 for the Northwest Baltimore Corp., but ...

"Mostly, we're here for some serious eating!" exclaimed NWBC executive director Diane Frederick at the group's first crab feast. Some 220 NWBC supporters proved Frederick right, as they dug into steamed crabs, crab soup and corn on the cob, while digging the discs spun by DJ Jerry Stampler.

Among those eating and greeting: event chair Sonjia Travers; NWBC president Jean Yarborough; board members Rahn Barnes and Barbara Scott; Janie Geer, president of Park West Medical Center; Pastor David Brown, Living Word Christian Center; Ronald Billy, president of Pimlico Merchants Association; and Mary Thompson, assistant to the president, LifeBridge Health.

NWBC is a community umbrella organization made up of more than 60 community organizations and business associations in Northwest Baltimore.
