The Women’s Home could not have asked for a more beautiful day to host our 2016 Crawfish Boil. Almost 500 guests gathered at West Alabama Ice House on Saturday, April 2, 2016 for a day of pinching mudbug tails in support of The Women’s Home. In just under four hours, our enthusiastic crowd threw down 2,400 lbs. of crawfish while enjoying an amazing slate of silent auction items and special spring merchandise from The Cottage Shop’s Mobile Boutique. The party went to a whole new level when the Travelocity Gnome dropped in for a surprise visit.

With the support of 64 event sponsors and over 80 volunteers from Bank of America, Houston Methodist, The Women’s Home and Williams, the event grossed over $80,000!

We are grateful for the extreme generosity shown by all of our sponsors this year and would like to especially thank Houston Methodist (our premier sponsor), Admiral Transfer and Rigging, Inc., the John P. McGovern Foundation, Marine Foods Express, Cole Chemical and Distributing, Katy & Logan Boatman, Desroches Partners, Inc., and Williams for their major sponsorships.

Special thanks to 2016 event chairs Matthew Corbett, Courtney Goldberg and Natasha Prather for their amazing leadership as well as the Crawfish Boil Host Committee for their time and support. Their hard work helped The Home supersede its goals for 2016!
