Steelhead Society of BC Pub Night Fundraiser

Posted on November 5th 2012, by Steelhead Society of BC

The 2012 Steelhead Society of BC Pub Night Fundraiser is November 29th! This year, the SSBC is looking at a project on rehabilitating the Bonaparte (an important steelhead spawning tributary to the Thompson river). It will be a similar sort of deal as last year's Spius creek rehabilitation project regarding habitat restoration.

Location of the fundraiser is Micky's Pub (170 Golden Drive, Coquitlam). There will be a live auction, silent auction, swag, and much more. Tickets are only $20, and that includes a burger and a beer! Beyond the prizes, food, and drinks, this is really a great opportunity to socialize with a dedicated group of steelheaders. If you aren't a SSBC member and wish to join, there will be membership forms available.
