First annual Benefit Dinner for Harbor WildWatch is Saturday

The first annual Benefit Dinner for Harbor WildWatch will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday (Oct. 10).

The dinner is for guests ages 21 and older and will feature food from Brix 25 and Taylor Shellfish Farms, along with beverages from Heritage Distilling Company and Henry Earl Estates.

Local harpist Moriah Rees will provide entertainment during the dinner and a presentation from professor Michael Behrens, a Gig Harbor resident, will take place at the end of the evening.

“This will surely be a night to remember in downtown Gig Harbor thanks to our amazing local partners,” WildWatch executive director Lindsey Johnson said in a release.

The dinner will be held at the The Club @ the Boatyard, 3177 Harborview Drive.

Tickets are $100 per person or $800 per table and are available online on the WildWatch website.

All event proceeds will be used to help fund classroom and outdoor education programs that directly benefit local students in the coming year.

Harbor WildWatch is a Gig Harbor-based nonprofit organization dedicated to environmental education about the Puget Sound. The organization offers more than 500 interactive programs yearly.
