Fishermen Helping Kids with Cancer herring sale — this Saturday!

The very popular Fishermen Helping Kids with Cancer herring sale returns for its fifth year, this weekend on Saturday December 5th. ¬†Herring by the boatfuls, freshly caught in the Gulf of Georgia, will be rushed back to Steveston (at the Steveston Harbour Authority¬†at 12740 Trites Road), where 20lb bags will be sold for $10 each (cash only) from 8am to 4pm, with all proceeds going to the¬†BC Children’s Hospital, to help kids with cancer.

This event is run entirely by volunteers from BC’s commercial fishing industry, whose hard work and dedication have helped to raise¬†$300,000¬†since its start in 2011. For a behind the scenes look at the extraordinary efforts of all those involved, check out their videos¬†from past years, and be sure to visit their website for lots of interesting information about herring, including recipes!
