Anglers auction benefits 'Kids' Day'

Members of the Puget Sound Anglers' North Olympic Peninsula Chapter are hosting the club's annual fundraising auction and dinner on Thursday, Jan. 15, at Sequim's Guy Cole Convention Center at Carrie Blake Park.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with a spaghetti dinner starting at 6 p.m. Water is provided with the meal or bring your own beverage; donations for the dinner are appreciated.

A silent auction for a wide assortment of merchandise runs throughout the evening. The key event, the live auction, is held following dinner. Live auction items include fishing trips with renowned guides on Olympic Peninsula rivers for salmon and steelhead; charter boat services out of Neah Bay for halibut, ling cod and sea bass and Ilwaco for sturgeon; and trips with club members out of Port Angeles, Sequim or Seiku for salmon or halibut.

The premier auction item is a multi-day guided fishing trip on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

Proceeds from this auction provide the majority of funding for the annual Olympic Peninsula Kids Fishing Program held at the Sequim water reclamation pond, set this year for May 16.
