Armstrong to lead anglers auction

Kia Armstrong is used to selling carrots and talking up Brussels sprout in her position as sales manager at Nash’s Organic Produce, but on Feb. 22, she’s taking the stage as the live auctioneer at the Annual Puget Sound Anglers — North Olympic Peninsula Chapter (PSANOPC) Annual Auction Dinner and Fundraiser.
“I was delighted to be invited to host the auction,” said Armstrong, “because all the money goes toward such a great cause. Just think of how many kids catch their first fish ever at the Fishing Day! I’ve been told I have a big mouth before and now I guess I can put it to good use!”
The public is invited to attend the PSANOPC’s largest fundraiser of the year and all proceeds from the event go to raising rainbow trout for the Kids Fishing Day held annually in May at Carrie Blake Park in Sequim and to a natural resources scholarship for a local student.
The local band “The Highlanders,” led by guitarist Chuck Grall, will be performing for diners, featuring songs from their pop, folk and country repertoire. Kia’s husband, Cort Armstrong, also will make a guest appearance with the band and will assist her with the auction as well.
Close to 100 items are slated for the silent and live auctions, including rods, reels, tackle and guided fishing trips have been donated by area sponsors and members.
The 2014 Auction and Dinner will be held at Sunland Golf & Country Club on Feb. 22. Doors open at 5 p.m. to view the auction items. Dinner will be served at 5:30 p.m.
“I’m excited to help kick up the auction a notch and hook some donations for the derby,” Armstrong says.
