The Whale Museum’s “Celebration of the Orca Greeting Ceremony” is this Friday!
It’s not too late to buy tickets – here’s more from Jenny:
The Whale Museum’s upcoming 6th Annual “Celebration of the Orca Greeting Ceremony” fundraising dinner and auction will be held on the evening of Friday, May 4th at the Mullis Center in Friday Harbor. Just as the Orca whales come together in what are called “greeting ceremonies,” so, too, The Whale Museum wants supporters to come together for this fun evening.
The evening will begin with happy hour & a silent auction at 6:00 p.m.; the no-host bar will include beer, wine and Sangria. San Juan Roasters is brewing the coffee. Market Chef is preparing dinner. The entrée choices include Chili Verde Pork Enchilada Casserole or Roasted Green Chili & Seared Local Greens Enchilada Casserole. Both entrees will be served with black beans, rice, Mexican cheeses, and fresh Crema as well as Market Chef’s House favorite Chili Lime Slaw. After dinner, the live portion of the evening will get started with the live auction followed by a dessert auction. That’s right, dessert after dinner is available in this delicious auction. Bid on delectable treats like “Luscious Chocolate Mousse,” “Fresh Fruit Pie,” “Double Chocolate” cake and a dozen more. Special thanks to four businesses for sponsoring the event: Islanders Bank, Islanders Insurance, Petro San Juan, and VanderYacht Propane.
