They’re still counting the cash, but it appears last weekend’s 11th annual herring sale for charity was another huge success.
Cars were lined up all day long Saturday at the Steveston Harbour Authority on Trites Road with people ready to grab their pre-ordered, 20-pound bags of fresh herring.
The event is organized every year by the charity Fishermen Helping Kids With Cancer, which raises thousands of dollars for kids being treated for cancer.
Organizers, while still tallying the money raised this year, think they may have breached the $1 million barrier of donations since 2011.
The B.C. fishing industry pays all costs for the herring sale and 100 per cent of the money goes to kids being treated for cancer at BC Children's Hospital.
