Benefit dinner, auction for Whale Museum

The San Juan Islands’ resident pods of orca whales come together each summer in what are known as “greeting ceremonies.”

In the same spirit, The Whale Museum invites orca supporters to its 8th Annual Celebration of the “Orca Greeting Ceremony.” This fundraising dinner and auction is Friday, May 9, at Brickworks building in Friday Harbor, 150 Nichols Street.

The evening’s events kick off at 5:30 p.m. with a happy hour (no-host bar) and silent auction, followed by a gourmet dinner, live auction and a dessert auction as well.

Dinner will be prepared by Friday Harbor’s Market Chef, vegetarian meals are available. Tickets are $30 per person, seating is limited; purchase tickets online at Proceeds benefit Whale Museum research and programs.
