Tickets available for Mossom Hatchery dinner and auction
Tickets are still on sale for the Sunday, July 13 auction and dinner to raise funds to rebuild the Mossom Creek Hatchery, which burned down in December.
The group is holding a ceremonial sod turning Thursday, July 17 for invited guests and still needs $150,000 needed to put shovels in the ground to build a basic building to get hatchery tanks up and running in time for the fall salmon run.
The dinner will feature salmon donated by Canadian Fish Company, a variety of local salads and grilled vegetables prepared by Fred Soofi of Pasta Polo, and PoMo firefighters handling the grill.
Among the auction items are: a once-in-a-lifetime fishing trip adventure to Langara Fishing Lodge for two, valued at $10,000; a unique art deco wine cabinet designed and handmade by Rick Carswell and Alison Kirkley of Kirkley Carswell Art Furniture, and filled with $400 worth of wine; native art prints and photographs; a tour of the Sea Lion Research Station; and a Seattle Mariners jacket and two game tickets.
The July 13 auction and dinner take place from 6 to 9:30 p.m. in the Galleria at Port Moody city hall. Tickets cost $45 and are available by calling 604-787-9758 or going to www.mossomcreek.org.
