Larry Stefanyk’s banner (above) has been sold but there are many others available for sale at www.psf.ca which will benefit the Pacific Salmon Foundation.

Arts Council makes it a banner year for Pacific Salmon Foundation

Pacific Salmon Foundation raises money and makes grants to volunteer organizations that work on behalf of salmon across the province

The end of summer means that the lovely street banners that have graced our town will soon be taken down.

The Campbell River Arts Council, creator of the Banner Project, has launched the web site for the Banner Auction. This web site, set up by this year’s sponsor, the Pacific Salmon Foundation, will help you to bid on your favourite. Go to www.psf.ca (click on “Support PSF” and 2013 Banner Project), select the banner you would like, click on it and make a note of its number. Either phone the number provided or e-mail. How easy is that?

Funds from this banner auction will go to the Pacific Salmon Foundation and the Campbell River Arts Council.

The Pacific Salmon Foundation raises money and makes grants to volunteer organizations that work on behalf of salmon across the province – $34 million invested in volunteer-driven salmon projects that have engaged more than 35,000 volunteers. The Foundation was established in 1987 as an independent, non-governmental, charitable organization to protect, conserve and rebuild wild Pacific salmon populations in British Columbia and the Yukon Territory.
