Annual Spring Fundraiser at the Seahorses Cafe

A photo taken at last year's fundraiser, when nature decided to bless us with some of the white stuff!

It’s almost spring and time to plan for our fabulous annual Peninsula Streams Seahorses Dinner and Silent Auction.  You can mark the date in your calendars now – Monday, April 23.  Sandi Harte of the Seahorses Cafe in Brentwood Bay is still working on the three course gourmet dinner menu with your choice of a meat, fish or vegetable entree and the price is still the same as last year – $40 for one person or two for $75.  There are only 36 seats in the restaurant so you might want to reserve yours now by contacting us by email or phone at (250) 363-6480.

Of course, eating dinner and socializing in good company with live entertainment is only part of the evening’s appeal.  Before, during and after, there is the grand Silent Auction.  It’s a good thing that everybody can have a drink to ease the rising tension and excitement.  And here’s where you all come in, even if you can’t be there yourself.  We are looking for works of art, Peninsula literature, organic foods and wines, personal services and gift certificates of all kinds to put on the auction block.

We hope you are inspired to contact friends, relatives, neighbours, businesses or your local merchants and talk to them about making donations or even come up with your own donation.  If you are successful, please contact us!  We’ll need to get full descriptions from you and, where possible, an appropriate picture.  So please join in the fun!  The sooner we can get a reasonable list of items, the sooner we can get the Silent Auction under way. Try it, it’s fun!
