PacMam’s 2nd Annual Trivia Fundraiser Great Success!

Thank you to everyone who attended our 2nd Annual Trivia Fundraiser at Bastion Brewing Company!  

Our MC Brian had some great trivia questions (great job everyone who participated in that!), and everyone was incredibly generous with their raffle ticket purchases and silent auction bids.  We managed to raise about $600 in total, which is huge so thank you so much to you all!

We had a great time chatting with you and sharing our love of the Salish Sea – we hope you did too!  If you couldn’t make it but are still interested in donating or supporting PacMam, check out our “Donate” page for more info.
