Thanks to long time supporters 40 KNOTS Winery and Susan Carson and Rick Morson of CIBC Wood Gundy, as well as all our guests, the 3rd annual Salmon BBQ was a delicious success. Even though the weather wasn’t great, Brenda and Layne of 40 KNOTS were prepared with a large canopy for their outdoor area, heaters and blankets so that the light rain and wind only made our salmon bbq that much more West Coast.
Susan and Rick of CIBC Wood Gundy sponsored the event to the tune of $1,500 and 40 KNOTS contributed just over $3,250 worth of cash and in kind support. This allowed the event to bring in over $5,500. In addition to this, two cheques were presented; one from the Comox Harbour Authority for $2,152 from the Nautical Days golf challenge which was sponsored by Ivan Lee of TD Wealth, ADI Benefits and SOS Orthotics; and one from My Tech Guys for $1,000. High Tide Public House raised the stakes of our riveting reverse 50/50 draw by donating five $25 gift certificates that went to five lucky participants. In addition to the funds brought in, the salmon was tasty, the wine and beer flowing and the music lively.
Our next event at 40 KNOTS will be our annual St.Patrick’s Day Dinner in March when we celebrate being green in many different ways! Hope to see you there. To sponsor the St.Patrick’s Day Dinner event contact email@example.com.
