Pacific Salmon Foundation (PSF) is the leading non-profit organization dedicated to salmon conservation and restoration for the benefit of present and future generations of Canadians.
Governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, PSF raises and administers funds to support community based salmon project and education activities which are run by volunteers throughout B.C. Through partnerships with governments, First Nation, the private sector, individuals, non-government organizations and other agencies, the PSF has contributed over $45.4 million towards more than 2400 projects throughout the province.
Since 1989, the PSF Community Salmon Program (CSP) has contributed $889,265 in long term funding for 126 conservation projects in the Campbell River region with a total project value of over $5.56 million. These grants were made possible through partnerships and private donations as well as PSF fundraising events.
The seventh annual Campbell River Dinner & Auction holds its formal Black & White evening tomorrow at the Fraternal Order of Eagles and will be catered by Fraternal Order of Eagles Ladies Auxiliary. The event is sold out.
This event is organized by a local volunteer committee and all net proceeds raised at this event will be directed towards salmon restoration and enhancement activities in the local area. The evening will consist of live and silent auctions as well as several raffles. The auction will include fishing adventures, original artwork, giftware, jewelry and other unique items.
Please note: The Pacific Salmon Foundation Dinner & Auction is not a 50’s themed event as indicated in Friday’s Community Calendar. It’s a formal, black and white event so put the leather jacket and hair grease away and break out the dinner jacket and tie.
