Cioppino is an Italian-American dish made of a combination of crab, clams, shrimp, scallops, squid, mussels and fish. The seafood is then combined with fresh tomatoes in a wine sauce and served with bread.

So where can you indulge in this mouthwatering dish? You can eat as much cioppino as your stomach can take at the Cioppino Feed and Live Auction hosted by the Rotary Club of Bakersfield West.

Friday on "First Look with Scott Cox," Howdy Miller from the rotary club talked about the event kicking off at 6 p.m. Saturday at Garces Memorial High School.

"We always have a good crowd; it's a party," Miller said.

The cioppino is prepared by the Bakersfield College culinary arts department and is made the day of the feed, so the seafood is fresh.

Money raised from the $100 tickets will benefit local charities such as the Boys and Girls Clubs of Kern County, along with others.

Tickets will be available at the door, Miller said.
