At Port Renfrew Marina we held our annual Labor Day Derby back on Sept 2 and 3, Labor Day weekend, as anyone who fishes out here knows. The goal was to raise funds for salmon enhancement and this year we donated to two great causes. One was Juan De Fuca Salmon Restoration Society and that donation was $10,000.00. The other organization was South Vancouver Islander Anglers Coalition to which we gave $5502.95.
See the email below sent to us from Mike Hicks who was instrumental in getting this initiative going.
Rex and Bud,
Thank so much for starting us on our way with your huge donation. Thanks also for the referral to the Lake Cowichan Kinsmen Club.
Below is a picture of our donation going to South Vancouver Islander Anglers Coalition to Glen Varney in the amount of $5502.95 in cash.
We are Port Renfrew Marina want to thank everyone who contributes to this derby each year, without individuals and businesses who generously donate goods or services this would not be possible and we thank all the people at the derby for opening their wallets and participating in our raffles and auctions! When you see what even a small group can accomplish it makes you appreciate and understand how important these events are. It sure makes all the effort to put these kind of events on worth it!!
Bud & Rex
