Time is running out to buy tickets for the third annual Ocean of Plenty Shellfish Gala Dinner.

This fundraising event for the CoalWatch Comox Valley Society will feature shellfish and seafood harvested by local growers in Baynes Sound, and prepared by local chef Dawn McRae, owner of Custom Gourmet.

“Once again our theme is celebrating what we grow,” said CoalWatch president John Snyder. “The event is a celebration of the rich bounty found in Baynes Sound, and the local shellfish and seafood know world wide.”

The event will be held April 13 at the Fanny Bay Community Hall, 7793 Old Island Highway. There will be a cash bar, fresh oyster bar, 50/50 draw, and silent and live auction items, many of them donated by local artisans. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

This event has sold out in the past, so don’t be left out. Tickets are sold at Laughing Oyster Books in Courtenay, Blue Heron Books in Comox, Fanny Bay Seafood Shop in Buckley Bay, Abraxas Books and Gifts on Denman Island, Salish Sea Market in Bowser, and Heaven on Earth Natural Foods in Qualicum Beach.

For more information, phone John at 250-335-2246. To view the menu, go to www.coalwatch.ca.
