Every year, since its inception in 2011, Fisherman Helping Kids with Cancer raises funds for children suffering with cancer at BC Children’s Hospital, attracting thousands of hungry customers from both local areas and often, folks south of the border to their annual Herring Sale.
The annual herring sale has raised more than $550,000 in seven years, with one hundred per cent of the proceeds going to the cause. Not a cent is kept by the fishermen themselves, and the cost of the event is generously covered by the BC commercial fishing industry.
This year, the Fisherman Helping Kids with Cancer event is taking place on December 1 at the Steveston Harbour Authority (12740 Trites Road), from 8 am to 4 pm.
