Thank you to everyone who joined us for this special evening! It was our pleasure to celebrate the impact of Feiro with you. With your generous support, we raised $49,525 – our highest amount yet!!
This annual fundraising event showcases the impact of the Feiro’s education and citizen science programs, and features dinner and live and silent auctions.
Fish on the Fence was started in 2009 by the late Paul Cronauer, a Port Angeles resident who envisioned 20,000 fish covering the fencing that surrounds the Landing Mall next to the marine life center. It has since turned into a successful annual fundraising event, arts education program and interpretive art walk.
