Becoming Independent has developed a delightful partnership with the Flat Tire Club, a philanthropic men’s service organization. January 2015 marked the first year that BI was the beneficiary of the Flat Tire Club’s annual Crab Feed. In addition to great food and people gathered for a great cause, the street was lined with the gorgeous vintage cars collected by the Clubs’ members. To date, net proceeds have exceeded $54,000, and the Flat Tire Club, was able to sponsor an entire room and services in BI’s new Autism Integrated Services Wing.

This year’s Crab Feed will take place on February 11, 2017. Keeping in the tradition of forward thinking funding, the Flat Tire Club chose to focus on outfitting BI’s main campus with quality furniture that will both professionalize the organization and enhance the functionality of this highly utilized community space.

“We are delighted to be partnering with BI again to ensure that they have efficient and reliable resources available for their growing organization” – Flat Tire Club

This year’s event is sold out!!
