Canada Day Crowd Supports BC Fire Fighters Burn Fund

The salmon sold-out in just over one hour. Late arriving salmon lovers might have been disappointed, but BC’s Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund couldn’t be happier.

On July 1st, Marine Harvest Canada, along with Campbell River Fire Fighters, Eagles Ladies Auxiliary and Fountain Tire served Marine Harvest farm-raised salmon to raise funds for a good cause. In just over an hour, 340 portions of delicious salmon and potato salad were dished out at $7.00 a plate. The total raised was over $2500, thanks to some very generous ‘tips’.

This is the 5th annual salmon Canada Day BBQ fundraiser held at Campbell River’s Robert Ostler park.

“It’s a real team effort”, said Ian Roberts, MHC’s communications manager. “Marine Harvest donated over 210 pounds of fresh salmon fillets, the Campbell River Fire Fighters cooked on BBQs donated by Fountain Tire, the Eagles Club served and the people of Campbell River were very eager to help eat it and support the Burn Fund.”

The Burn Fund provides life saving, life supporting, and life enriching services the people of British Columbia. Over 3,700 professional fire fighters in BC and the Yukon dedicate their skills to support burn survivors and increase the public’s knowledge about fire and burn safety.
