Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade to Host “Claws for Kids” Fundraising Memory of Judy Kramer

Joe’s Stone Crab in Miami Beach will once again host Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s 11th Annual “Claws for Kids” in memory of Judy Kramer. The in-person fundraising brunch will take place on Tuesday, May 3, kicking off with a cocktail reception at 11 a.m., followed by brunch at noon. Guests will enjoy delicious stone crabs and other signature menu items without the wait. Olga Guilarte and Lisa Mendelson are graciously co-chairing this year’s event.

“Claws for Kids” is held in memory of Judy Kramer, a longtime Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade Board member, who helped create the event and chaired it since inception until her passing in February 2021.

Proceeds will benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s many positive programs, including after school programs, homework assistance, computer training, social skills, dance, arts & crafts, professional mentoring, and summer and athletic programs.

“It’s an honor to hold the 11th Annual ‘Claws for Kids’ in memory of Judy Kramer who helped create this event and chaired it since its inception,” said Alex Rodriguez-Roig, president of Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade. “We look forward to seeing everyone back in person and enjoying Joe’s famous stone crabs while raising funds to benefit the Club’s many positive programs.”

Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade supporters who cannot attend the event can still enjoy Joe’s famous stone crabs at home or on a date of their choice with the purchase of a gift card, just in time for Mother’s Day. To participate, guests must purchase sponsorship gift cards on the Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s website to benefit “Claws for Kids.”
