Tonight is the "Evening with Alexandra Morton" and it's all about saving our wild salmon! Join us at 6pm on Saturday October 1st at the Quadra Community Centre.
We are offering delectable desserts and an undoubtedly lively evening that promises to entertain, inform, and inspire. Doors open at 6pm to give you time to view the auction items and enjoy refreshments, desserts and entertainment. At 7pm Dr. Alexandra Morton will give a multi-media presentation on her recent adventures and research findings while on the Sea Shepherd's Martin Sheen. Following will be a live and silent auction with items donated from BC, the USA, Norway and our own local artists and businesses. At the end of the evening, Alexandra will pull the 14 winning tickets to the raffle draw, where Quadra and Vancouver island businesses have generously donated almost $9,400 in prizes, including extended kayaking tours, guided fishing tours, resort stays, whale watching trips and a Tofino hot springs excursion.

While donations to this event and raffle tickets has been generous and humbling, we can still use a few more lovers of wild salmon to donate to this most worthy cause.

Raffle tickets are still available and prizes may be viewed on Facebook's "save our wild salmon raffle" page. Please call 250-285-2272 or 250-204-4230 to donate or purchase tickets...hope to see you tonight!
