Annapolis' Rotary Club is looking for recommendations from now until Jan. 15 for how to spend the more than $50,000 it raised during its 67th annual crab feast.
In order to qualify, the applicant(s) must spend the money in a way that improves "the quality of life for the Annapolis community, and touch as many people as possible," according to a press release.
The 2012 crab fest held in August at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium brought in around 2,500 diners and drinkers. Volunteers served up 40,000 crabs, 130 gallons of crab soup, 3,400 ears of corn and 60 kegs worth of beer.
The 2011 feast brought in more than $70,000, but about 47 percent of that came from a single donation made in memory of Annapolis Rotary Club member Phil Richebourg.
A club committee will choose the 2012 winners, which will be announced during February and March. In the past the club supported a range of organizations that worked on social reform, health care, the environment and the arts.
Interested groups may apply for a grant online at www.annapolisrotary.org/application.
Online applications are preferred, but people can also apply by mail using the online application as a template.
