Your Real Champion® 

“Crab Cakes for a Cause”

Jason and Bridget Lottier are owners of several Capt’n Chucky’s Crab Company locations, and most recently acquired the main location in Newtown Square. Their generous nature includes partnering with many schools and churches in fund-raising projects. Bridget was so moved by the story of a little girl who lost her battle to cancer that they added “Philomena’s Jersey Shore Crab Cake” to the menu and donate some of the proceeds to the non-profit formed in the child’s memory.
