    “Women Reaching Out to Women” Scholarships

    Carmel Woman’s Club awards scholarships to Monterey County area women students, at-risk and/or students returning later in life to Monterey Peninsula College.  This $1,200 per year $600 per semester cash award helps women, who are the primary wage earners to enter or return to school and overcome difficult circumstances.

    At the Lobster Boil we have the opportunity to provide scholarships for even more women.  There are two different ways to participate: choose an item from the Giving Sea or bid in the Silent Auction.

    I.  Giving Sea

    Many of our scholarship women work and care for children while going back to school.  Our scholarships cover one-year direct education expenses.  You will have the opportunity to “purchase & donate” an item from the “Giving Sea display” which represents the cost of items such as a semester of tuition, books, or bus passes. 

    Choices include items from $25 to $500+.

    II.  Silent Auction Gifts

    Our Silent Auction team has done an extraordinary job creating wonderful packages to enhance your life.  Please consider which one(s) you might enjoy winning!  To win you must be present at the close of the Lobster Boil (approximately 8:00pm) when winners are announced.

    Eating Lobster

  • A Memorable Experience!

    This extraordinary Lobster Dinner is out of this world!  Lobsters and shrimps are boiled in huge pots on our patio … each guest is served a freshly boiled whole lobster, along with an amazing assortment of vegetables, shrimp and sausage spread down the entire table!  We eat with our fingers and wear bibs.  Dinner also includes one glass of wine or beer.

    Enjoy a festive night with your CWC friends before our streets start to roar with Car Week or invite your lobster-loving car week guests for a fun and memorable experience.  Could be the highlight of their week!  It’s also a wonderful way to introduce our friends to our Club and Scholarship Program.
