This year, Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade invites everyone to support its 10th annual “Claws for Kids” in memory of Judy Kramer, by purchasing gift cards from the iconic Joe’s Stone Crab.

A portion of 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.

Participants can choose to dine at home or at Joe’s Stone Crab on a date of their choice, and enjoy their world-famous stone crabs and Joe’s other signature items. To participate, guests must purchase sponsorship gift cards on the Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s website by May 3, to benefit “Claws for Kids.” Then they may select the day and time of their own choosing.
