Finest at Sea partners with Fishermen Helping Kids with Cancer

8th annual fresh herring fundraiser sale Dec. 1

Finest at Sea collaborates with Fishermen Helping Kids with Cancer for its eighth annual fresh herring sale.

This event runs entirely on the passion of volunteers knowing that 100 per cent of the proceeds go directly to kids with cancer; to help them in the fight of their lives.

The spark that started the inspirational fundraiser is a daughter of a B.C. commercial fisherman. Moved by her steadfast battle with cancer, a fellow fisherman had the idea that the BC commercial fishing industry hold a fresh herring sale to help all kids with cancer. Though our inspiration helped in the planning of the event, she succumbed to cancer at the young age of 17, which was a few days before the inaugural herring sale in 2011.

The event is being held on Saturday, Dec. 1 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. or until they sell out. The fresh herring is $15 for 10 lbs or $20 for 20 lbs, at Finest at Sea at 27 Erie Street. All funds raised go to the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.

The 2017 herring sale raised $106,598 for kids with cancer.
